I am a Wikipedian and link from PooterGeek to the wonderful Wikipedia frequently. This communal project has shown (yet again) the power of distributed collaborative work via the Net—just like the operating system running my PC and the Web server sending this page to you. Further, Wikipedia has proved conclusively that a philosopher can be both useful and participate in a World-changing revolution without his ideas being used to excuse mass murder. Here he is. (When you look at the interviewee’s photo I want you to remember that he is exactly the same age as me.)

UPDATE: The cover design of the current dead-tree edition of MIT Technology Review is inspired—and might soon be illegal in England and Wales.
