"Wikipedia Challenge"

I've been reading various blog & discussion group postings about the "Wikipedia challenge," the idea being that you post some blatantly false information in some entry and see how long it takes for someone to correct it, with points awarded according to how obvious the error is and how prominent the subject. There's a nice discussion of the game at this Websnark post, which shows how the challenge underscores both the strengths and weaknesses of the open-sourceapproach.
