Andrew Sullivan writes today about some Wikipedia shenanigans. Whether Wikipedia calls him a socialist or not, the real treat of the post lies here:

Believe it or not (and most won’t), I haven’t checked my Wikipedia page in a few years. I’ve learned that it’s better for my sanity not to read everything written online about me.

I find it hard to believe that the famously prolific Sullivan (32 posts on Sunday March 8 alone) can avoid reading about himself online.

Noted D.C. media-type Bill Beutler has just launched a new blog (”the fifth blog … since 2002″), The Wikipedian.

Beutler already writes BlogPI, a general media blog, and used to write for National Journal’s Hotline and in particular, The Blogometer.

Beutler plays with Wikipedia for a living:

In my capacity as Innovation Manager at New Media Strategies I’ve spent the past year (and then some) developing consultative services for clients regarding Wikipedia engagement, leading the white hat approach to Wikipedia optimization.

So prepare to have your Wiki-brains rocked by a pro. Also, he’s a former English major, like yours truly, so give him some love. It’s hard out here for us lit crit twits.
