Re: <nettime> The strange love affair of Wikipedia and EGS

Do you think that one should differentiate, in terms of reliability of
sources, between blogs written by unknown people and blogs written by,
i.e. famous authors or blogs for specific publications? In the case of the
wikipedia EGS article, blog entries by Bruce Sterling for his wired
magazine blog were not considered primary sources, blog entries by DJ
Spooky on his personal site were not considered and the blog for IFP's
Filmmaker Magazine were all considered unreliable sources.

Also, if political controversy is the question, EGS is a university, not a
very politically controversial subject at all.
