Wikipedia - Palm Springs
Jun 29, 2006 - 03:01 PMWikipedia started in January of 2001, and it's now one of the most-used reference sites on the Internet, with editions in over 200 languages.
Wikipedia is a website that allows visitors to edit article content, so it is written collaboratively by volunteers. Since the project is open to a large contributor base, it's sometimes susceptible to vandalism or unchecked information which might later need removal.
However, it is also quite responsive to new inputs, especially information not widely known in the West. It's highly unlikely to retain any bias and is very hard for any group to censor.
Jimmy Donal "Jimbo" Wales is the founder and president of the Wikimedia Foundation, a non-profit corporation that operates Wikipedia. Last month, Jimbo was named to the Time 100, a list of "the 100 men and women whose power, talent or moral example is transforming our world."
Finally, here's the Wikipedia entry for Palm Springs, California.
