Seems like Wikipedia has finally been discovered by the mainstream, the article in The Guardian actually does a decent job in describing the strenghts and weaknesses of the encyclopedia. Wikipedia is a great resource because the articles are written, edited and updated by the users. This makes it extremely up-to-date, but it also leaves it open to inaccurate information being entered into it. Although this is true, the article in The Guardian makes it clear that when people deface the encyclopedia with rubbish or abusive comments, the comments are fixed almost immediately by other users.
