Major PR firms agree not to edit clients' Wikipedia entries

Major PR firms agree not to edit clients' Wikipedia entries | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
For years, Wikipedia and the public relations industry have battled over what the online encyclopedia's administrators once termed "suspicious edits" - changes to Wikipedia's publicly edited pages benefiting the firms' clients. The deal comes after the Wikimedia Foundation, which runs Wikipedia, said in October that hundreds of editing accounts may have been "sock puppets" - users who deceived the site and broke conflict-of-interest rules by writing content for hire. "There always was this Cold War between Wikipedia editors and the PR industry," said Andrew Lih, a professor at American University who helped broker this week's deal and has written a book on Wikipedia. Beutler advocates the creation of a separate organization to oversee Wikidpedia content issues, which would give public relations firms and others a more direct route to requesting changes to pages without engaging in unethical editing.

World Cup is the Global Test of 4K StreamingVizWorld.com | VizWorld.com | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Two things drive OTT/IPTV (Over the Top/Internet Protocol TV) streaming content and the demand for bigger, better TV screens. Sports is one of them. To emphasize that fact, Cisco reexamined some of their numbers in their annual Visual Networking Index Global Forecast. The FIFA World Cup runs through July 13 and millions of people around the globe will stream the games, highlights and even replays over the Internet. Cisco, Sony, Akamai and anyone who is anyone in the content production, distribution and delivery food chain will be watching with extreme interest … just to see how well the global Internet performs. It was widely discussed at the recent BroadbandTV conference because the IP broadcast of the event should generate more than 4.3EB. That’s about 3X the monthly IP traffic generated by Brazil (an Exabyte is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 Bytes and the volume generated will be roughly equal to all of the words ever spoken by humans).
