Earl Mardle makes an interesting observation – Andrea Dworkin, Dead or Alive? – about how wikipedia effectively scooped mainstream media.

This is brilliant, not just for the fact that the story of Dworkin’s death was published on Wikipedia 24 hours before it hit any other news site, but for the open way in which the story is verified. For now Wikipedia people still defer to the corporate media for confirmation but as citizen journalism gains confidence and resources, that will fade.

His next post – Little Brother watches – and outnumbers – Big Brother is an optimistic interpretation of an issue that’s more often seen negatively. Interesting stuff.
