To what shall I compare Wikipedia?

September 27th, 2006

Edited from an email I sent to Wikipedia’s mailing list – on the subject of consistency and article standards.

“At present Wikipedia is like driving down the main Limerick to Dublin road (the N7); where along the same route you will have anything between spanking new motorway and aged narrow two lane (no hard shoulders) winding bumpy country road. Oh – except that in Wikipedia’s case – bits of the road are missing entirely.”

I don’t think I was being too mean to either Wikipedia or the National Roads Authority/Irish Government eh?
