[TIPS] VA Tech on Wikipedia

Thanks to Tim Lauer (http://tim.lauer.name/2007/04/23/the-latest-on-virginia-tech-from-wikipedia-new-york-times/) for pointing us to this article in the NY Times regarding how wikipedia was used by over 2000 writers to help document the horror of that day. Do check it out. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/23/technology/23link.html?_r=2&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

What a powerful tool, is it not? What? You say it's blocked in your school? How very sad that there are those in power who are such obstacles for education.
