In the past few seconds, someone from Canada edited the Wikipedia page for The Hangover Part III while another person in Fresno, California tweaked the page for Armenian cuisine. It keeps on going.

It sounds really cool. Specially now that I´m back in college for my second degree.

Wikipedia's most common sources of information are news outlets, books, and academic archives. So if your teacher has banned Wikipedia, just follow Wikipedia's trail of sources to get to the good stuff. Oh, and don't tell them we sent you.

Hmmm... Worth knowing about. Still can't cite it, but a good place to start for background info.

A great starting point - track it back to see where it might have come from.

Teach students and teachers how Wikipedia can be a starting point in the research process, not the final destination.
