Wikitorial: A Chronological Link List

On Friday, June 17, the Los Angeles Times announced that it would experiment with a “wikitorial.” The original, published piece entitled “War and Consequences” would be posted alongside the publicly edited wiki version. More than 1,000 users logged on to participate that day. Participation was high on Saturday, but by early Sunday too many vulgarities had been posted for the paper’s taste and the site was taken down. No links are available to the paper, since everything was pulled at the end of the experiment.
