Das Wort hat

Nicholas Carr, der in seinem Blog der englischsprachigen Wikipedia die gleichen Probleme bescheinigt, die man auch der deutschsprachigen ankreiden muss:

"In theory, Wikipedia is a beautiful thing - it has to be a beautiful thing if the Web is leading us to a higher consciousness. In reality, though, Wikipedia isn't very good at all. Certainly, it's useful - I regularly consult it to get a quick gloss on a subject. But at a factual level it's unreliable, and the writing is often appalling. I wouldn't depend on it as a source, and I certainly wouldn't recommend it to a student writing a research paper."
