Wikipedia in China

This story from the Washington Times gives an account of the short history of wikipedia in China. What it tells me is that with the right technology, China is capable of change from within. I think that is a very nice message. Given the current popularity of forums and Instant Messaging in China and how hard they are to control, I think coming up with software to replicate the Wikipedia effect without having to cross the Great Firewall is possible. It might even involve those Trust Metrics I’m so excited about at the moment.
