A good read on how a prominent composer lost his Wikipedia page—and why Wikipedia is no longer what it used to be
Today’s good read by Ted Gioia is particularly interesting because it highlights the pitfalls of a renowned, trusted resource - Wikipedia. I know our college professors hated Wiki citations (and understandably so). Wikipedia has played an important role in establishing credibility, and it’s been a familiar name for most people in the last decade or so. This was a good read because it made me think about the cracks in the system that can come up when a well-intentioned more “meritocratic” system starts to mess up because of its users.
