Wikipedia editing policy in the news

The NYT has an article on Wikipedia’s editing policy that focuses on the relatively new semi-protection policy. The list of some of the current protected articles is interesting — I’ll have to check out what controversies surround the entries for Boston and Play Station 3. Low-level revision wars must be common. The Wikipedia UMBC entry has seen protracted diagreements about trivial thing, like whether we’re in Baltimore or Catonsville and the comma in our name.
