Editing by committee
Wired reporter files a story to be edited by wiki -- and discovers ho-hum results.
Certainly the final story is more accurate and more representative of how wikis are used.Related:
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.
It feels more like a primer than a story to me.
