iApprove: Wikipedia.

October 21, 2008

Well, who doesn’t?  I mean, Wikipedia is awesome.  You can look up just about anything there.  And thanks to the magic of Wikis, you’re far more likely to find detailed information on stuff you’re actually interested in than all that stuffy “significant” content they like to tout themselves for.  Check out, for example, the page on Gwen Stefani versus pages on more notable people such as Grandma Moses (Who?  Exactly.)

Be careful, though, that you don’t abuse its powers — schoolteachers around the world have been forced to crack down on plagiarism-happy students who have lifted entire essays from the site.  It’s a good place to learn, but it’s not a good place to take all your material from.
