Yet another pretty damn cool Wiki


Maybe these are all old hat, but not too long after discovering Wiktionary, I've come across another cool Wiki version of a classic resource. Wikinews is news by open community contribution. Terrifying or edifying prospect, based on your point of view. In my view, it's a nice opening for me to find stuff, and then do my own research to check up on it.

The coverage seems to be a bit laggy, and coverage is a bit spotty (a search for "Nigeria" brought up only one storage all month). All this is as expected for a volunteer-run site. It's a neat idea and neat execution, natheless.
