KATIE HAFNER. 19th Aug 2007. Seeing Corporate Fingerprints in Wikipedia Edits. The New York Times. v
WikiScanner is the work of Virgil Griffith, 24, a cognitive scientist who is a visiting researcher at the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico. [...] Mr. Griffith, who also likes to refer to himself as a “disruptive technologist,” said [...] “The yield, in terms of public relations disasters, is about what I expected.”


Mr. Wales, who called the scanner “a very clever idea,” said he was considering some changes to Wikipedia to help visitors better understand what information is recorded about them.
