Like me, I'm sure many of you are grateful for the invention of wiki's like wikipedia. Personally, i've been impressed with the way people with previously stubborn bias have been able to become a little more open-minded and forgiving when debating some of the more morally taboo and other 'hot' topics. However, lately I think we're beginning to witness the 'information overload' problem in wikipedia; where ones attention span is stretched so far as to give up halfway through the material, leaving the previously interested viewer with only a portion of the impartial whole. There are four questions that should be asked concerning this problem:
Is there a better term for this phenonmena?
Is it a real problem?
Is it fixable?
How can we fix it?
