Article on Paid Wikipedia Entries

This Capital Times article entitled, Wikipedia payment: Why the big deal? was today’s Library Link of the Day.

Abstract: Gregory Kohs last year launched MyWikiBiz, a service that offered to write Wikipedia entries for businesses for $49 to $99. But a few days afterward, MyWikiBiz’s account on Wikipedia was blocked. Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales called Kohs to tell him MyWikiBiz was “antithetical” to Wikipedia’s mission.
