Contributions of 2,074 editors, 107 references and no supervisors or managers to speak of, at last count, wikipedia has created a polished, detailed article on the massacre, with more than 140 separate footnotes, as well as sidebars that profiled the shooter, Seung-Hui Cho, and gave a timeline of the attacks.

According to the foundation that runs the various Wikipedias around the world, there were more than 750,000 visits to the main article on the shootings in its first two days, an average of four visits a second. Even The Roanoke Times, which is published near Blacksburg, Va., where the university is located, noted on Thursday that Wikipedia “has emerged as the clearinghouse for detailed information on the event.”

From attacks to responses to the incident to inaccurate media reports wikipedia has everything collected and well organized. A good note to gun control debate has also been added.

See the wikipedia page here.

And you can contribute into it too, in your own way. But Don't Be Evil!

    Salmon - I wasn't aware of the power of Wikipedia as it relates to the VT massacre. Like everyone, I blogged on the events in Blacksburg VA ... however, I didn't know to refer to Wikipedia for more details. Thanx for sharing!
