Arthur Frommer plugs Wikitravel[edit]

Arthur Frommer (yes, that Frommer) plugs Wikitravel in this article:

Just as wikipedia.org tries to create a universal encyclopedia written by its readers, wikitravel.org tries to create a universal travel guide written by its readers, a storehouse of information on every travel destination, however minor. So far, this free-of-charge electronic travel guide doesn't come close to competing with the guidebooks in bookstores (wikitravel suffers from skimpy hotel selections, deadly writing style and pricing errors), but it occasionally contains historical or geographical information that might assist in the planning of your trip. It's something to watch.

Not exactly a glowing review, but any publicity is good publicity, right? Jpatokal 11:10, 30 July 2006 (EDT)
