Comparison of Conservapedia and Wikipedia

Aaron Sherman of has been attempting to track the relative quality of Conservapedia vs. Wikipedia, applying a consistent set of metric criteria to random pages from both sites. He’s been measuring about once a month since early March, and there are already some interesting data available.

I must say I’m a little uncertain about his statistical methodology – the size of his samples in particular seems a little on the small side, but it’s an interesting project nonetheless. I’m looking forward to seeing what results he comes up with in the long run.
