Jimmy Wales, the so-called founder of Wikipedia, is in Egypt's Red Sea resort hobnobbing with heads of state as chairman of the World Economic Forum's Middle East summit, popularly known as "Davos in the Desert." The message he delivered in a press event: "Too often when people around the world reflect on the situation in the Middle East they focus on extremism and the different problems." With Internet adoption exploding in the region, "we're going to start hearing from ordinary people," Wales added. What Wales did not get into: How those "ordinary" people will react when they encounter his online encylopedia for the first time, and find that articles on child sexuality are edited by ardent defenders of pedophilia. Perhaps sharia will prove more effective than current management at enforcing Wikipedia's "neutral point of view" standard.
