"Wikipedia is not an authoritative encyclopedia, and it should stop trying to be one." - Nicholas Carr

Argumentum ad verecundiam. No mention nor rebuttal by Nicholas Carr of the bug equivalency metric. I'll take Carr's post as a recognition that the Britannica and Wikipedia approaches are viable. Somehow, I'm reminded of scripting vs static typing programming language arguments a few years back - incumbents slowly forced into acknowledgment. And I'm in no doubt, that while the metric may lack meaning, the numbers alone have surprised people.
