Wired's Wiki Experiment Isn't Really Working

The experiment in collaborative journalism from Wired Magazin has come to an end. There are different parts of the editorial process where for wikis. Ryan Siegel summarize the results in the article "The Wiki That Edited Me":

"Certainly the final story is more accurate and more representative of how wikis are used. Is it a better story than the one that would have emerged after a Wired News editor worked with it? I think not. The edits over the week lack some of the narrative flow that a Wired News piece usually contains. The transitions seem a bit choppy, there are too many mentions of companies, and too much dry explication of how wikis work."
