What Have You Changed Your Mind About?

or, The Implicit Meme of Paul Kedrosky, or, The Edge Annual Question. Paul has changed his mind about the importance of changing his mind.

One of my changes of mind during 2007 concerns Wikipedia. At the start of the year, I admired its collaborative process, while being suspicious about the content resulting from that process.

I am now more confident about Wikipedia’s content, and less impressed by its process. Confidence in content has risen with use. Confidence in process has fallen due to the secret mailing list story.
