Dear Jim,

I'm wondering if you'd be interested in doing a video interview with us about your work looking at Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica. We're making a short educational documentary about Wikipedia for Project New Media Literacies, a MacArthur-funded research initiative at MIT's Comparative Media Studies program. We'll be coming to Wikimania, but we'd really like to pre-schedule some interviews so we don't get lost in the excitement of the goings-on. It would be a quick interview at your convenience. Specifically, we'd like to ask you about the strengths and weaknesses of Wikipedia and EB. Please let me know if you're interested (vanbertozzi(at)gmail.com). Hope to hear from you soon!...Vanessa Vanbertozzi 00:29, 1 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
