Wikipedia, you are the strongest link
John Naughton of The Observer examines the loop between Wikipedia and the major search engines and asks whether the encyclopedia is now as dominant as Google: There are two kinds of people in the world – those who think Wikipedia is amazing, wonderful, or inspiring; and those who simply cannot understand how a reference work compiled by thousands of ‘amateurs’ (and capable of being edited by any Tom, Dick or Harry) should be taken seriously. Brisk, vigorous and enjoyable arguments rage between these two camps, and provide useful diversion on long winter evenings.
