The Onion Greets Wikimania

The Onion greets WikiMania

Wikimania is about to start, but here, the ever-topical Onion folk are poking fun at Wikipedia.

What is there to say when “America’s finest news source” casts aspersions on the world’s newest encyclopedia with the headline Wikipedia Celebrates 750 Years Of American Independence?

Extra: watch out for Meredith Farkas‘ panel presentation on wikis and enabling library knowledgebases. I should have thought of this in the context of Ryan Eby’s question about librarians going to non-library conferences.

funny, The Onion, Wikimania, Wikipedia
