Wikipedia nos define:
Los términos ingleses blog y web blog provienen de las palabras web y log ('log' en inglés es sinónimo de diario).
No todo son elogios.
También se la cuestiona...
The comment submitted by Eric Barbour, a moderator of Wikipediocracy (wikipediocracy.com), a website dedicated to criticizing Wikipedia, immediately grabbed my attention. Barbour did not mince his words of condemnation of Wikipedia:
"Wikipedia is an insane place, and it cannot be handled or used as if sane people administer it."
As evidence of that, I offer the image above left of Wikipedian Kevin Gorman, formerly known as "Wiki-Gnome."
I learned of Gorman from a presentation by Siva Nadarajah, General Manager – Social Media @IMSHealth, who spoke at CBI's recent "Social Media Compliance Strategies & Benchmarking Summit," which I chaired in Philadelphia. His slide presentation linked to a Youtube interview of Gorman (here).
But I digress. Aside from belittling the sanity of Wikipedians, Barbour had this piece of advice for the pharmaceutical industry:
"Any drug or medical company that openly follows the proposed FDA guideline will quickly find their accounts banned and their changes reverted. And the FDA will ultimately look foolish."
That's because of Wikipedia's "Bright Line" rule, which is taken as "gospel" by many Wikipedians. What is the "Bright Line" rule?
This rule, invented by Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, "absolutely forbids 'paid advocacy editing'," says Barbour. "Despite its questionable provenance, certain Jimmy Wales fans take it as 'gospel', and act on it as if it were 'official'." (Más)
