Wikipedia and Writing Our Own Stories

If you aren't familiar with Wikipedia.org I'd recommend checking it out. I'd suggest that it is a great starting point for research in general. It is literally "free content" experiment of sorts, an online Encylopedia of almost everything, open to additions and editing by anyone. In theory, the group edits out errors over time, and leaves with more and better knowledge over time.

And I'll admit, when I first discovered it -- I assumed that it would be riddled with errors.
To the contrary, I've found it a great resource, and although I always fact check it, but it has proven very valuable to me. And if you see things that are not factual, you can correct them yourself.

And I think it a good resource for progressive Christians both to use for research and also to document our various stories, confessions and statements of faith and politics.

A starting point to see what is already there would be: the bios for Tony Compolo, Ron Sider and Jim Wallis.
