Wikipedia is a collaboratively edited, multilingual, free Internet encyclopedia. Volunteers worldwide collaboratively write Wikipedia's 30 million articles in 287 languages, including over 4.5 million in the English Wikipedia. Anyone who can access the site can edit almost any of its articles, which on the Internet comprise the largest and most popular general reference work. In February 2014, The New York Times reported that Wikipedia is ranked fifth globally among all websites stating, "With 18 billion page views and nearly 500 million unique visitors a month..., Wikipedia trails just Yahoo, Facebook, Microsoft and Google, the largest with 1.2 billion unique visitors."

I feel as though I might have learned more from wikipedia than I did in years and years of public school. To be fair, I have a sneaking suspicion that many of my teachers were drunk most of the time, but that's to be expected growing up in the midwest. But need information on the civil war for a term paper? Wikipedia. Need to know how to dispose of a body? Wikipedia.

That being said, it's also a website where anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject.

Joke's on you, LoveHorses235. Wikipedia is all user create content, most of which was submitted by drunk public school teachers.

We used to have these things called Encyclopedias, where you could flip through and learn facts about the world. They were heavy, they took up a lot of room, and they needed updating far too often to commit to buying a set, but we still all had a set in our houses... even if it was missing book #10 Garrison - Halibut. Some people even paid payments to have these books.

Now we have wikipedia. It's easily edited by any rando on the internet and we all take it as the word of God...

I'm pretty sure you still can't cite it on a research paper for school, but maybe that has changed?

Whenever I am looking for information, the first thing I do is go on the Internet and look at Wikipedia to see if there is some information posted on it. The website gives
a lot of useful information on almost any topic in almost 52 languages. However, the content on Wikipedia is all user created and anyone can edit or add some information to any topic they like so I always have to be very careful in using this type of information as a reference in my research papers or assignments due to authenticity.

its a good site of source of knowledge but not sure that the content is all good not bad because the content is uploaded by public and changed by public.

Ok. I can't really say enough about Yelp being an internet bully especially when it comes to smaller businesses. I understand that you have to keep a site moving by having advertisements and what not. But when it comes to small business owners wanting control over their own yelp page and web pr...

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
