What do you think about the potentinality of internet? Do you consider wikipedia (the free online encyclopedia) a great source of knowledge? Could it be the new vehicle of culture, opened to everybody? I think it has revolutioned the conception of knowledge, a place that contains the experience of all around the world people, of course it is still limitated, but can develop in infinite ways... somebody believes it's useless but we must (according to me) improve its capacity... i hope u'll help its programmers ^^!

My answers to your questions : The potential of the internet cannot be safely measured. Wikipedia is a great source of knowledge It is certainly one of the new vehicles of culture (liked this image) but not the only one. And I agree that it revolutioned the knowledge.

I think its a very valuable source because it contains a very large amount of general information on pretty much anything you want to look up. It makes it easy to familiarize yourself with a topic. On the other hand, it opens the truth to various people and IMO those that are on the internet enough to edit wikipedia, mostly have a liberal bias. It isn't always good information, but most of it is pretty good.

I love this site and often check it for information. I have found that they have a good amount in there that I'm usually looking for. I've tried other places but this one is easier to find things in then like Encarta. I think more and more people will use it as they know about it. The more people who use it the more likely it will to improve and give us the tools we need.
