Wikipedia losing editors

Wall Street Journal reports that Wikipedia.org, the fifth most popular web site in the world, is losing millions of the volunteer editors who actually write, edit and police the entries. They’ve suffered a net loss of 49,000 editors in the first three months of 2009, compared to a loss of 4,900 a year earlier. That’s always been one of the more troubling aspects of the new media, it’s short attention span until the next hot program/site comes out.
