Wikipedia

I've heard of free online encyclopedia Wikipedia for some months now, but only gave it a proper test drive a couple of weeks ago.

I am impressed by its depth in a number of areas, including science, popular music, politics, sports and geography. Its worth bookmarking.

Test drive

Royal Guardsmen ( music group )

Wickipedia, according to Roger Simon, also includes unsigned and unattributable "facts", which are often wrong. Apparently it isn't very reliable as a single source.

I have heard of recent problems...but in the quick check I did of maybe twenty subjects, Wikopedia was very good.

But your point is well taken...I wouldn't take anything, even Encyclopedia Brittanica, as a single source.
