Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that allows anyone to contribute, will be tightening its rules for submitted entries. This change comes less than a week after John Seigenthaler Sr., who was Robert Kennedy's administrative assistant in the early 1960s, wrote an op-ed article revealing that Wikipedia had run a biography claiming Seigenthaler had been suspected in the assassinations of the former Attorney General and his brother, President John F. Kennedy. As a result of this and other past discrepancies, Wikipedia will now require users to *register* before they can create articles.
(And somehow...for the longest while now, I could just smell this new rule coming.)
In any event, if you're a frequenter of Wikipedia like I am, you can read more about it here
Make it a good Tuesday tomorrow, all. And by the way, there are only 19 more shopping days left 'til Christmas, just in case anyone needed reminding, 'kay? (Insert serious eye roll here if you like, followed by a petulant groan and muted "Bah, humb...")
Oh, never mind. Peace.
