Self Governance and the Web

To learn that Brian Chase wrote the piece in Wikipedia (see below) as a joke was really encouraging. CNN reports that apparently Brian Chase did not know that Wikipedia is used for serious research and wanted to just fool around for his own very peculiar reasons. With this incident I think couple of great and good things about the web and human beings become apparent. John Seigenthaler Sr. is not proposing action against Brian. Brian seems sorry for what he did. The Web and Wikipedia should be able to redeem itself from this mess. That folks feel responsible is so refreshing… is the Web able to govern itself ?
