In universities, we’ve always been told that academicians will never accept any sort of citations or information quoted from Wikipedia. The main reason – as far as I’ve been told – is because they’re entirely crowd-sourced, and not by “experts”. “It’s a sin to use Wikipedia!”, as what I’ve been told on the first day in university. Sure, not everyone is an expert by profession. Consider this though – there are many non-certified people who are better than most of us when it comes to the subject at hand.
Wikipedia has a really vast library of articles – ranging from history to art, scientific discoveries and even documentation of smartphones! You can literally dive in to Wikipedia to read about Wikipedia itself! Most of the time, when I’m reading through any articles, I’ll get distracted and go on to some other article. This cycle continues for quite a long time too. Even professors are making the switch to use Wikipedia too, because of resources of crowd-funded articles are beyond what a single professor can provide, of course.
I mean, personally, I gone through my bachelor’s degree in engineering majoring in nanotechnology recently, while working here at Nasi Lemak Tech. Most of the efforts on citations I used in projects, assignments, and articles are actually from Wikipedia. Heck, there are people who believes reading through the entire encyclopedia is good for your brain – but I believe reading Wikipedia might be more useful.
There are just way too many tips and tricks on Wikipedia, and we’re going to teach you how to use it.
