Andy, thanks for this. There are some interesting ideas circulating re Wikipedia (some in reaction to some negative press the latter has received). For instance, in a thread on H-Africa, there is discussion of how scholars, and instructors & students in universities can generate new content and correct old content on Africa. See http://www.h-net.org/~africa/ (recent postings, or better yet, search Wikipedia in the "Search H-Africa" window).
