Who Says Miller was Immature? Not WikiPedia - Anymore
August 29th, 2007

In other techiness, Boulden at Daily Gotham has some fun with a new program called wikiscanner, which allows you to track changes to Wikipedia entries by organization or location. He finds some interesting changes coming from City Council computers to the Yvette Clark entry, as well as to Gifford Miller’s.

    I’m not sure I’m impressed: So someone in Yvette Clark’s office took out a full paragraph that was really about Major Owens. I know it is technically against the rules of Wikipedia, but it is hardly a gaffe.

    What Bouldin doesn’t mention is that the same editor at the City Council added a line about how “She has emerged as a voice of reason and a true leader” — arguably a much less objective addition to her profile.

    The changes to the Giff’s entry are similarly not all that scandalous. The quote cited (that referred to him as “showing signs of immaturity”) was a pretty political quote to begin with.
