Wikipedia vs. Encyclopedia Britannica

The founder of Wikipedia debates with the head of Encyclopedia Britannica... Worlds collide, but its really interesting reading, debating the merits of open-source to closed when it comes to content (and content that is supposed to be authoritative)... To me, it really comes down to the idea that knowledge is always changing, and to be up-to-date, the storage of that data must constantly evolve to keep up... - Will Wikipedia Mean the End Of Traditional Encyclopedias?
