Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Frank Arrigo

Last week, an entry about me was added to Wikipedia.

This kicked off a good old fashioned Wikipedia style debate, and the article is being considered for deletion “in accordance with Wikipedia’s deletion policy.

LOL.

I haven’t edited the entry and I didn’t coerce anyone else to contribute to it.

Right now, there are 10 deletes (including 4 strong deletes) to 6 keeps.

Looks like the days of the article are numbered.

Wikipedia Virgins: You have to go to Frank’s page for deletion, clicking Edit This Page then write something like:

*”’Keep”’ Frank is Australia’s Scoble. We may have a small population but we deserve our own expert du jour. Delete Frank, Delete Scoble’s page. Unless wikipedia is US centric? ~~~~

Trust me, it won’t hurt. The four tildes (next to the 1 key) will auto-put in your username and time. Let’s save FRANK!!!! (If you have a blog, please pass the message on?) No-one gets to beat up our Geeks – ‘cept me! :p

  1. Hmm Nick this is a tough one. They are so overwhelmed in the US with Web 2.0 personalities that they don’t realise how rare it is to have an Aussie one. Does that make it right to include/exclude Frank from Wikipedia? I don’t know…

    And why do we insist on relying on links to traditional media and publishing to justify the impact of a Web 2.0 evangelist in Wikipedia? By the way, the fact that Australian Financial Review took away the article is just another nail in their coffin. Grrr.

    There isn’t a person in the *scene* here who doesn’t have a Frank story – behind the scenes at networking, or up at an event, or sponsoring something. Or just flaunting his meego avatar. 😛 But it’s hard to quantify big fishies in small ponds. And we ARE small compared to the reach of US evangelists. 🙁
