DC in all its Wikipedian glory

I ran across an interesting piece in the Post today about Adam Lewis. You’ve never heard of him, but he’s the guardian of the Wikipedia entry on Washington, DC. It seems that under Lewis’ careful eye, the DC entry has gone from a shoddy, decaying entry to a thoroughly sourced, well-researched, and informative article that has actually been featured as a shining example of Wikipedia at it’s best.

Maybe for his next project, Lewis could take over WMATA?

  1. Woo! I’ve worked with Adam, and he’s a great editor. While stewarding the article, he’s been surprisingly receptive to the madness of dealing with other editors, which I, on the Virginia page, have not managed. I’m glad the Post is giving some recognition where its certainly due.
