The Wikipedia Dump - The New York Review of Books

From a letter to the NYRB editors:

In response to The Charms of Wikipedia (March 20, 2008)

To the Editors:

I'm a Wikipedia administrator and greatly enjoyed Nicholson Baker's recent piece, "The Charms of Wikipedia" [NYR, March 20]. In it he says, "Someone recently proposed a Wikimorgue—a bin of broken dreams where all rejects could still be read, as long as they weren't libelous or otherwise illegal." Your readers may well be pleased to hear that to some degree it already exists—take a look at the Wikipedia Knowledge Dump at WikiDumper.org.
