The massive user-driven site is now the biggest encyclopedia in the world. The mainstream media covers it extensively. It was recently lampooned by The Onion and Comedy Central. Soon, Wikipedia may also become familiar to thousands of people without internet access -- selected articles from its extensive database will come pre-packaged with MIT's $100 laptop project.

But is there a future for wikis other than the encyclopedia model, or will open collaboration be the exception, not the rule?
