Initial post

Respond to the story.

Think about the story narrated in the audio file and illustrated in the links. What is this story about? Is it about problems with Wikipedia? Is it a story about problems with the internet? Is it a story about problems with traditional newspapers? Is it a story about an individual act of vandalism?  Maybe some combination of all of these?

Explain.

Remember that in the Discussions we are practicing “microstyle.” (If you need a quick review, here is a link to last week’s microstyle reading.) For your first reply in our Wikipedia discussion, write a subject line that forecasts a point you are focusing on in your reply. Here are a couple of examples of effective Discussion 3 subject lines written by past ILR260 students:

“Where were the fact checkers?”
“Hoaxster makes point but isn’t blameless”
