Wikipedia Color-coded Pages To Evaluate Facts

The UCSC Wiki Lab has come up with an ingenious way to evaluate the reliability of Wikipedia articles: color coding based on specific editorial reputation. Text is colored in various orange-y shades, and if it’s close to dark orange? Danger, Will Robinson!

So far, the project has only analyzed a couple hundred pages or so, but I think that this is a great way to manage the somewhat tricky problem of Wikipedia credibility. Entries are judged basically by how long they stay up without any changes; this obviously isn’t foolproof, but it’s a good place to start.
