Beutler describes his role as an editor, commentator and consultant for the Wikipedia website.
That suggests "paid" consultant. Has Beutler collected income from the WMF? I think they rather should have said, "editor, commentator, and consultant to clients about the Wikipedia website".
As a reminder, Beutler helped construct this litany of truths
about Wikipedia that he framed up as "myths".
Also, Beutler works for New Media Strategies, which is the PR firm that helps out Koch Industries
on the Internet, and which contributes 80% of the edits
to Wikipedia's article about New Media Strategies.
Anyhow, he'll be on C-SPAN at 8:00 PM tonight.This post has been edited by thekohser: Sun 1st January 2012, 6:59pm
