I like and admire Larry very much. I actually think his role in the early days of Wikipedia is under-appreciated.
Sanger quotes
Citizendium is based on the failings and unreliability of Wikipedia.
Sanger
A few of the project's participants can be, not to put a nice word on it, pretty nasty. And this is tolerated.




Sanger Larry quotes
I know Wikipedia is very cool. A lot of people do not think so, but of course they are wrong.
Sanger Larry
I thought that the evidence against your claims about me would shame you into changing your behavior. But, five years since you started misrepresenting my role in the founding of Wikipedia, you’re still at it.
Larry Sanger quotes
Wikipedia will be small, disreputable, and unimportant compared to CZ in a few more years. Uh, ;-)
Larry Sanger
If the project was lucky enough to have a writer or two well-informed about some specialized subject, and if their work was not degraded in quality by the majority of people, whose knowledge of the subject is based on paragraphs in books and mere mentions in college classes, then there might be a good, credible article on that specialized subject. Otherwise, there will be no article at all, a very amateurish-sounding article, or an article that looks like it might once have been pretty good, but which has been hacked to bits by hoi polloi.
Sanger Larry quotes
Wikipedia lacks the habit or tradition of respect for expertise. As a community, far from being elitist (which would, in this context, mean excluding the unwashed masses), it is anti-elitist (which, in this context, means that expertise is not accorded any special respect, and snubs and disrespect of expertise is tolerated).
