Can Google make a better Wikipedia? We might get to find out, acording to an article on Ars Technica. It looks like a good idea, but I don’t really think it will effect Wikipedia much, even if it does become popular. The reason is that the two sites don’t seem like they would be in direct competition as they provide two very different services, with each offering something the other does not. They might steal some traffic from one another, because if someone finds the information they are seeking on one site, they might not visit the other, but that can be said about just about every site on the web.
