Open Dictionary

Nov - 23 - 2005
Nicole C. Engard

I don't know why this idea seems wierd to me … I'm a big fan of Wikipedia, but a dictionary that anyone can add to just seems less trustworthy. Yep, Merriam-Webster has released an Open Dictionary:

[W]here you can 1) submit and share entries that aren't already in our Online Dictionary, and 2) browse entries submitted by other members of the Merriam-Webster Online community.

Interesting … but … call me old fashioned … I want an authority figure telling me what the definition of a word is.
