John Simkin Posted October 24, 2005 Share Posted October 24, 2005 There is an interesting article about Wikipedia in today’s Guardian. It asked 7 people to check the entries for their specialist subject (they had all written books about the subject). They were asked to rate the entries out of 10. This was the result: Bob Dylan (8/10), T. S. Eliot (6/10), Samuel Pepys (6/10), Steve Reich (7/10), Haute Couture (0/10), Basque People (7/10) and Encyclopedia (5/10). I decided to check out the subject I am an expert in: myself. Indeed, I found an entry for John Simkin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Simkin I would give it a rating of 6/10. It is completely accurate but fairly brief. All of the information seems to have been taken from my website. It can be edited so I think I will add to it. Interestingly, the Democratic Underground also has an entry on me. It seems to be taken from Wikipedia. http://demopedia.democraticunderground.com...php/John_Simkin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
