The power of wiki

Quite the most impressive online resource on the earthquake is the page devoted to it on Wikipedia. A wiki, for those not in the know, is a collaborative online site that allows anybody – and includes you – to contribute to it. You might expect it to be chaotic, but have a look at any of Wikipedia’s pages, and you will see a comprehensive, balanced and user-friendly source of information. While you’re at it, contrast the spontaneous order of the wiki with the centrally planned chaos of government machinery.
