Wikipedia and the Disappearing “Author”

Miller, Nora. “Wikipedia and the Disappearing ‘Author.’” ETC: A Review of General Semantics. Jan. 2005. 37-40.

This brief piece reviews the development of the Web and the wide distribution possibilities it offers. The author also generally considers the workings of Wikipedia and its policy of radical collaboration, as well as the nebulous nature of authorship within it. No original research or insights are presented, nor are there any references.
