Look, I’m not one of those Wikipedia haters. For regular folk like me looking for regular information as a starting point, Wikipedia’s not bad. It should not, however, be taken for a reputable source when it comes to serious matters, such as a research paper.
The next time your students question Wikipedia’s authenticity as a source, show them this graphic, specifically the part where it says “owner.”
This is what happens with open resources. Anyone can edit them, even exuberant Cleveland basketball fans after the Cavaliers trounce the Bulls in a best of 7 series!Share This:
