Wiki Experiment


Today, a fascinating experiment is happening over at MetaFilter. As an April Fool's joke, the site has been replaced with a wiki. People are already scribbling all over the home page. The question is by the end of the day will it self-organize into something useful, or will it be a shambles?

As my contribution to the forces for organization, I added a HappyAprilFools page (to collect joke pages people find today) and linked it from the front page. Within about 45 seconds the front page was defaces and my link was removed.

I'm cheering for the forces of organization to win. If I was a betting man, however, I'd lay my money on the forces of chaos.

Chaos? You mean free speach (TM)!
