How do you make use of Wikipedia? Do you find it a reliablie source? Should all webmedia be based on the Wikipedia model, as it is? Is there serious danger in concepts such as 'Wikitruth' or, on a lighter note, Wikifriends? I'd like all of us to put aside our WikiLove for a moment, and focus on the issues at hand here.
Personally, I use Wikipedia all the time. However, I find that I don't question its accuracy nearly as often as I ought- I'm often only skeptical of information that is blatantly noted as not cited. I'm not a regular contributor- I just fix grammar and small mistakes, most of the time- but I've heard from many that the process is totalitarian and unfriendly to those who understand the topic. From what I've seen, the correct information is given to the site, validated, and then made permanent. When two people have conflicting views, it's usually relatively easy to verify one.
Please, add your POV to the topic and also tell me what you think of other mass media engines, such as YouTube.
However, remember that the thread is primarily about Wikipedia. If discussion on other webmedia sources becomes common, I'll make another thread specifically for that. Let's try to stay on topic!
