Wikipedia: No Go for Web 2.1 Entry

Looks like we got the final word came in on the entry I made for Web 2.1 on Wikipedia and we got negged. My original post about this and a link to the original submission on the web2point1.org site is still accessible though, so perhaps someone can rewrite that and resubmit it more in the style they would like to see.

Not a big loss really, as it will either emerge as something or not. It did provide a personal lesson in regards to such knowledge community issues, the weight of member reputations versus 'outsiders' and the need for something better - so in a sense this is a good thing as it proves many of the points I have been making about the shortcomings of such systems.

Whatever happened to the Wikipedia anyway? wasn't it built by people? When did the new rules come in?

That sucks. I'd like to see an actual people's Wikipedia online that never sells out to the old fashioned standards.

;)
