Not sure if this is relevant to the article, but the hacker community has had something like this for years: --Douglas Muth 17:50, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Probably would have been, if we'd known about it at the time. Not sure how we want to go about adding extra information to news articles, if we do at all. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:04, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
Does WikiPedia have any guidelines or best practices for modifying news articles after they've been written? We're small potatoes compared to them, so I'm sure this situation has arisen before. :-) --Douglas Muth 18:59, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
Wikipedia has a touchy-feely relation to news. The project really dedicated to it is Wikinews, and they discourage changes except for a few hours after publication, eventually archiving (protecting) news articles. Where Wikipedia would have one article on the 7 July bombings (I was actually in the air on my way to the USA when this happened), Wikinews has a series of articles as the story develops. The encyclopedia article would be expected to weave them all together into a single piece. --GreenReaper(talk) 19:22, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
