Hi Krewe

I am writing an article for my SAS user group conference.
and am wondering about Convention Wisdom
for citations of wikipedia.org pages.

Are any other authors citing wikipedia.org as a reference?

If so,
1. which?

i.e.: as an article, book, collection, journal, proceedings, etc?

2. author for wikipedia entry?

These are the BibTeX entries I am using.

    booktitle={www Wikipedia},
    year     = 2005,
    author   ={Et Alia},
    title    ={Evaluation Strategy},
    note     ={call by reference or call by value},
    url      ={http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_by_reference}}}

    booktitle={Univ/Texas transcripts},
    year     = 1982,
    author   ={Edsger W. Dijkstra},
    title    ={Why numbering should start at zero},

    booktitle={SAS Community Wikipedia},
    year     = 2008,
    author   ={Ronald J. Fehd},
    title    ={Cardinality-Ratio},
    note     ={topics: definition and programs},
    url      ={http://www.sascommunity.org/wiki/Cardinality_Ratio}}
