From artists to spies, more going wiki on Web - The Boston Globe:
"Jamaica Plain artists Ravi Jain and Sonia Targontsidis , have launched Wiki-Cake, which they called an online experiment in collective cake-baking. 'It's kind of like picking out your wedding cake, only with a lot of people,' Targontsidis said."What's ironic is that Jain's Wikake wiki was deleted from Wikipedia and the collaborative cake making is happening on a blog.
"We're just really trying to embrace new media, and we've been fascinated with wikis the past few months," said Jain.I applaud my friend Ravi's artistic look into the collaborative nature of wiki's but question whether the Globe makes it clear that there isn't a real wiki involved in the cake making, just a virtual artistic wiki happening in real space.
Does it mater?
It would have been really nice if the Globe gave a link to Ravi and Sonia's Wikaklog blog.
The Boston Globe continues to write about websites without linking to them. It's not neighborly.
Here's a link to Dan Bricklin's WikiCalc which also didn't get a link in the article.
How many times do I have to make blog posts about the Boston Globe not taking the time to link to websites?
Message to Boston Globe writers:
When you write an article about a website, blog or wiki, include the URL in the story. The Globe's online system will automatically recognize it as a link and make it clickable.
I'd comment on the article, but the Globe website does not allow comments.
I emailed the author.
