I liked this month’s podcast, specially the responsibility we all have as wikipedia users to keep the resource correct, and when we find errors, we should correct them. I wrote something to that several years ago about databases, and as we use public databases, if we find errors, we need to report them … same great idea you presented this week.
Thank you for all of your podcasts, they are great,
