Slight Change of Heart at Encyclopedia Britannica

Link to June 9 PC Pro post, "Encyclopaedia Britannica dips toe in Wiki waters".

The encyclopaedia Britannica website is rolling out a new system allowing readers to potentially contribute to articles.

Britannica has long been a vocal critic of Wikipedia's user-generated content, and has repeatedly attacked the accuracy of its articles. Unsurprisingly then, it is keen to stress that its new website will not be following the Wiki-model, describing it "as a collaborative process but not a democratic one."

Beta version of Britannica website is found here.
