After the L.A. Times’ hastily withdrawn wiki editorial, few imagined papers would tread that path again. But tread they did, though perhaps using the wisdom of the masses a bit more wisely to collate data rather than to form an opinion on said data.
Ben Smith’s political blog, The Daily Politics, got tired of not having one regularly updated, definitive source on where various New York State Assembly members stood on gay marriage. So Smith created and spotlighted the wiki, which is available here.
So far, even with the wisdom of the collective masses, only 30 out of 150 members have been pinned down.
The vast majority of the edits appear to have been done by Smith himself.
