Peter, the publisher said Wikipedia "captures the zeitgeist" and so is valuable as an historical text. (Carrol, I didn't use "zeitgeist" the publisher did -- I hate that word now! LOL BTW, I've read a few critics whose work I respect who agree with you that 'zeitgeist" is meaningless.

Subject: OT German Wikipedia to Be Captured on Paper
 When someone decides to look something up in Wikipedia, a computer is typically involved. But that may well change. In Germany, a printed collection of Wikipedia articles is being produced for the first time by a major publisher, Bertelsmann.The book, "The One-Volume Wikipedia Encyclopedia," which will go on sale in September for 19.95 euros (almost $32), is an odd experiment in reverse publishing.  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/23/business/media/23wiki.html?_r=1&ex=1366689600&en=5bb0ac94052e6c8b&ei=5089&partner=rssyahoo&emc=rss&oref=slogin Diana
