Law Professor Predicts Wikipedia’s Demise

I just found this very interesting article in InformationWeek which predicts the fall of Wikipedia [via Law Librarian Blog].

Wikipedia will fail in four years, crushed under the weight of an automated assault by marketers and others seeking online traffic.

It’s a pretty interesting article – and could very well be true – as spammers and marketers learn to automate edits to the online encyclopedia for their own benefit it’s going to be pretty hard for those of us making edits by hand to keep up with the cleaning.
