The Wikipedia Dump

In response to:

The Charms of Wikipedia from the March 20, 2008 issue

To the Editors:

I’m a Wikipedia administrator and greatly enjoyed Nicholson Baker’s recent piece, “The Charms of Wikipedia” [NYR, March 20]. In it he says, “Someone recently proposed a Wikimorgue—a bin of broken dreams where all rejects could still be read, as long as they weren’t libelous or otherwise illegal.” Your readers may well be pleased to hear that to some degree it already exists—take a look at the Wikipedia Knowledge Dump at WikiDumper.org.
