WikiProject Medicine + Google
I just joined an initiative on Wikipedia which features Google and the medical editors on Wikipedia. WikiProject Medicine editors and Google reviewers work together on articles within Wikipedia:WikiProject Medicine.
Initiated at Google.org and then announced at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine#Announcement to WikiProject Medicine community prior to trial editorial review, this collaboration is intended as an exploration of active cooperation between professional medical editors and wikipedians to further improve the quality of articles. Work began with the identification of a short list of articles for review, selected as a cross-section of medicine-related topics. Each article on the list now has an assessed “Class” and “Importance”, harvested from its talk-page banner, reflecting Wikipedians’ initial assessment of their state.
While I’m not really sure I understand why it’s beneficial for Google, this is a great project which I’m gladly participating in.
