Historians Contributing to Wikipedia
I have maintained for a while that one of the best ways for academics to deal with the massive growth, in size and popularity, of Wikipedia, is to get stuck in and contribute themselves. It seems that this is happening to an ever increasing degree and yesterday's Chronicle points to an entry in Cliopatria: A Group Blog which lists dozens of historians who are dedicated to improving Wikipedia with their contributions. All strength to their arms, I say.
