Grading Wikipedia

The Denver Post hired 5 experts to check out Wikipedia for accuracy. The results:

“Four out of five agreed their relevant Wikipedia entries are accurate, informative, comprehensive and a great resource for students or the merely curious. The fifth scholar called his chosen entry “not very good,” found some details to be inaccurate by omission, and said similar entries in more accepted encyclopedias like Encarta do their job better.” (via)
