Wow, Professor Munger makes Wikipedia sound perfect. I wonder if there are any flaws in her class project to participate in Wikipedia? I wonder if there are any disappointments or setbacks regarding the content, whether we will ever hear about it in Scientific American? Because, I read elsewhere that there are a number of critically-important flaws in the Wikipedia system. Munger hasn’t encountered a one of them, it seems.

Here's one article the class seems to have created.

Note that the subject of the article has only ever been mentioned in one of all Google's various books, and one published only in 2011, at that.

Who will nominate for deletion as non-notable this article about "Culture in music cognition"?

Isn't the better question how will the APS respond when many of its members are banned like hundreds of professors and academics have been in the past?

In Wikipedia, it doesn't matter if you follow the rules, the policies, the standards, etc. when a person who is clearly putting in original research, plagiarism, vandalism, etc. isn't. Many times the regulars don't give a crap and would rather block the professor because the person doesn't fit in with their view of Wikiculture.
