k d lang never had this problem

Shelly at Burningbird has an interesting article. This is hardly news. To-day's interesting article is on Wikipedia's preference for process over truth. One of the site's leading contributors was born "danah boyd", lower-case throughout. Wiki insists on the erroneous capitals. Why? In a nutshell: Wikipedia is not for placing "the truth", it is for placing summaries of information that is already published in other credible news sources. In short, it's not enough to be right, one must be seen to be right. Memo to self: find an alternative source of links for Mastermind summaries.
