LOL! Dave Winer on DMOZ vs. Wikipedia

DMOZ has a bad rep for having editors with conflicts of interest. And it’s exclusive, unlike Wikipedia which at least has battles (never thought I’d say that) of people with conflicts, DMOZ doesn’t even have dissent among conflicted people, only one point of view exists, because there’s only one editor for each category.

(My emphasis.)

Interesting to note how Dave is spinning against the DMOZ hierarchical catalogue (I never heard of any repution for conflict of interest that he claims, though it’s plausible) just as he’s about to launch a revolution in online hierarchical directories. 🙂
