Crowd-sourcing used for Pope coverage

The visit of Pope Benedict XVI has had a plethora of media coverage, rendering it, to date, one of the biggest religion stories of the year, in a year with many stories with a religion angle. The New York Times, in addition to its reporter coverage, has an extensive blog with entries from experts on religion and Catholicism, as well as from readers. The participatory nature of the blog leads to a variety of topics from Catholic education, to relationships with Jews to the Pope's fashion sense.

I found the latter fascinating, but needed to check here to see the meanings of some of the words.
