Britannica Vs. Wikipedia

About a month ago I posted some thoughts on the media's growing use of Wikipedia as a source. This is an intriguing topic for me, and I think shows a growing connection between the main stream media and the blogosphere. Today I read a post on Boing Boing that mentioned a recent story on the accuracy of Wikipedia compared to the Encyclopedia Britannica. This study found that there wasn't a significant difference between the two sources since both contained errors. Very interesting.
