An incredible Wikipedia entry – the April 6-8 tornados

An incredible Wikipedia entry – the April 6-8 tornados: This Wikipedia entry is a very striking example of the power of the collaborative-media platform to build a resource of information surrounding a breaking-story. There’s even a Wikipedia project to help figure out how to better cover such events in the future. Hats off to all involved, including the most incredible Nashville wikipedian I know, Ryan Kaldari, who contributed photos to this entry.

(Thanks, Lewis – the minimalist blogger.)

    Just to show how woefully behind I am, my addition of the storm survey image marks my first wikipedia contribution. Luckily I had Ryan sitting next to me to show me how to add the image.
