My usage of Wikipedia as an online reference has continued to grow over the last couple of months. Although in general most of the entries are well written I've seen a couple of entries that need a bunch of work. Some of these I could actually help with but just don't have time right now. I have a list of these entries and thought it might make sense to post them on my blog on the off chance that someone reading my blog may be interested in updating these entries. 

The entries I'd like to update if I had some time are

All of these are entries that I consider incomplete and believe I could flesh out. Also some of the writing is extremely sloppy but I guess that's what you get when anyone with a pulse can edit an entry.

I found a few minutes to return the favor (in advance): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dare_Obasanjo

Its always refreshing to see that you get it! The beauty of Wikipedia is the ability to participate in an open process of creating knowledge for broader consumption via content editing and contribution. As per usual, many see Wikipedia purely from the: "here is the next big hype item" perspective. They fing it more constructive crticize without constructive alternatives. As I stated (on my Web 2.0 talk page), its easier to say: "I don't like that...," than it is to contribute a perspective that deepens or clarifies the knowledge pool.

Criticizing an entry in Wikipedia without contributing is inherently oxymoronic :-)

BTW - I deliberately stood back to observe what would happen to Web 2.0 on Wikipedia, and until your post today there hasn't been any genuinely constructive action or commentary.

What continues to amaze me is that I am yet to find a "Web 2.0" contribution from any of the self proclaimed Web 2.0 pundits or thought leaders.

I'm not sure if you have the time or the inclination to take a look at your wikibiography, but if you are interested in "cleaning" it up, here's the link:
