WikiScanner

Making the news for the past week or two has been WikiScanner, a website that allows you to discover which organisations having been editing Wikipedia entries. As Slate reports today, it's been throwing up some interesting results.

My favourite edit comes from my old friends the Scientologists, who edited Kurt Cobain's entry to include a link which suggests the singer's childhood Ritalin use led to his suicide. Way to push your agenda guys.
