Professor Praises Wikipedia

3 thoughts on “Professor Praises Wikipedia”

  1. Agreed, it’s good for quick facts. I take my Wikipedia with a grain of salt but use it a lot to find other, confirming sources. At the bottom of just about every article is an “External Links’ section where I often find primary source material for the topic I’m researching.

  2. It is a site generated by the public, so only put as much faith in it as you put in your fellow human beings.

    Personally, I put a lot of faith in people, and the process of the community pooling together its knowledge for the greater good is almost inspiring.
