I wonder about the timing of this backlash. Where was the outrage when Qwiki won TC Disrupt back in September?

Is it just because $8m > $50k, or has something changed in the last four months?

I think the complaint is that nothing (visible) has changed. Based on what I've seen, I really doubt the value of this company has anything to do with reading Wikipedia, but rather in making vast amounts of content and relationships between content more accessible.
