WIKIPEDIA WARS UPDATE: With all the criticism of Wikipedia, here are two interesting stories. First, a study claims it's as accurate as Brittanica.

Second, my brother (the history professor one, not the budding rock-star one) notes that after a bunch of academics criticized Wikipedia for being inaccurate, some of them came up with a novel idea: Help make it better!

He's got posts on that shocking phenomeon over at Cliopatria, here and here.
