Wikipedia now in hard copy

Clearly, no idea is too far-fetched to implement, in this day and age. German media agency Bertelsmann is apparently bringing out a hard copy version of everyone’s favourite online encyclopaedia, Wikipedia. The first edition will contain about 50,000 articles, a few with images. I thought the whole point of Wikipedia was its instant-editing function. If this is going to be the first edition, I wonder how many they’ll need to bring out over the course of as small a period as one year, in order to be as accurate as possible. Oh well! A new idea it certainly is. A smart one? I don’t think so….
