Wikipedia and the Long Tail

Fred Wilson got kicked off Wikipedia for not being notable. Robert Scoble thinks that's lame.

I got kicked off Wikipedia, too. Their whole definition of notable does not acknowledge the increasing fragmentation of information markets. It is a relic of limited-space paper encyclopedias, incompatible with Long Tail thinking.

Wasn't one of the reasons your article got deleted was because you created it?
