Funny, this entry:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_activism

is awful. really, really awful. A good example of how some areas of
wikipedia are suffering from a lack of participation. It's probably
because most media activists are busy posting on their own websites...

also of interest is the discussion around the neutrality of the
definition of Indymedia. there's a meta-meta example of irony for ya.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indymedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Independent_Media_Center

Maybe the media activism entry on wikipedia would be a good place for
some wry critiques of wikipedia?
