Wikipedia eviction

Today's Slate podcast: http://media.slate.com/podcast/Slate070227_Wikipedia.mp3 is an interview with Timothy Noah, who had a Wikipedia entry and then had it be marked for deletion due to lack of notability. The interview's done by the Sound of Young America's Jesse Thorn.

While I listened to this, it occurred to me that I actually know some people who had Wikipedia articles about them deleted -- actually, I might be such a person myself, if you count the now-defunct article about Interröbang Cartel.

So, anyway, I thought people might find the interview interesting.
