People trust Infopendium. But who are the people behind the facts?
My novel Infodemic is about an unlikely group of volunteers who must race to defend the world’s most popular online encyclopedia against malicious disinformation on the cusp of a global pandemic.
About me: Hey, I’m Stephen Harrison. A few years ago I stumbled into the unexpected journalistic niche of covering Wikipedia and its editors. I’ve written about the encyclopedia’s most prolific contributor for the Washington Post, and today I write a column for Slate about internet information.
