    Weird. It’s named like “wiki,” suggesting that it’s a site that’s maintained by crowdsourcing, but in reality they’re just pulling in content from existing services. Wikipedia bios, pitchfork/billboard news stories, photos from Flickr, social media feeds, etc. There’s actually nothing “wiki” about it.

    Any decent developer could reproduce this product in a couple of weekends, I don’t know why anyone would invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in a dot com that offers no original content.

    It’s put together alright, though. I’ll give them that.

    Combine this with non-hazed album credits (sorry All Music Guide, you lose on that one), and this could be a success.
