Wikipedia

For me Wikipedia is an important website and one of the top sites I visit. When I first started searching for information, I noticed that Wikipedia was almost always one of the links for my information. In the article by Baker, Charms of Wikipedia he explains how it was started and helped people self teach themselves about different topics. Wikipedia is very useful but sometimes hard to believe. Most articles in Wikipedia are on point to the information you are looking for, but others articles have been vandalized. A very interesting part of Wikipedia is that anyone can add information to it. This can be a positive or a negative aspect. It can be positive by others helping to contribute to the articles, not one person can keep updating everything. The negative part is simple, people can lie on the article and make others lose trust in Wikipedia. But I find Wikipedia very useful and have used it to do many research projects or papers.

  1. Very good points, Jeremy — Wikipedia is great, but has its down sides, too.
