Wikipedia, the world’s largest online encyclopedia relies on millions on users for its content and likewise millions of users worldwide now rely on wikipedia on information about just any topic.

On the other hand, ‘Wikiality’ is the method of making something up, but getting enough people to agree with you so that it becomes reality.

  • The Guardian: Can You Trust Wikipedia? (click here)
  • The Register: Who owns your Wikipedia bio? (click here)
  • The Register: Wikipedia: magic, monkeys and typewriters (click here)

My Point: 90% of the time what you get at Wikipedia is a great information, its the remaining 10% thats concerning. So, readers discretion is advised!
