Do you think that Wikipedia will disrupt the travel guide book in the same way as they did with the printed encyclopedia? Will tourists prefer do get crowd-sourced information about destinations from fellow travelers, instead of getting trip advise from book editors and travel agents?

I used to bring along a small pocket guide during my journeys, but maybe that will change in the future with personalized travel stuff at my fingertips, e.g., with mobile apps, map and web browser.

Wow! Wikipedia sure has gone a long way. From awesome online encyclopedia to soon to be amazing travel guide. Let's wait and see if this will be as successful as Wikipedia!

I do wonder how they manage to run these sites, donations perhaps?

Teepu: Thanks for your comment. If I understand it right, they will run the Wikivoyage in the same way as Wikipedia; with donations.
