The OED is a wiki

While reading “The Meaning of Everything” by Winchester, I thought the collaborative approach to finding quotations awfully similar to wiki-ness.  Someone else thinks so:

“Diamond said the new Internet-age concept of “wiki” fits well with the 120-year-old dictionary’s own methods.

“Its long tradition of working on collaborative principles means it has welcomed the contribution of information and quotation evidence form[sic] the public over 150 years,” he said.””
