Dilbert on Wikipedia


Many people consider Wikipedia as an Encyclopaedia and believe everything up there to be true. (I have even seen some post-graduate students using Wiki as one of the References for their thesis!)


Though most of the time information on Wiki would be authentic and credible, Wiki is not the ultimate word on knowledge.

A recent Dilbert toon in the Economic Times (dated 2nd June 2009, Mumbai, India edition) had a very good comment on authenticity of Wiki – where the character being questioned about his claim says ‘Give me 10 minutes (to update Wiki page) and then check Wiki to verify my claim’ 🙂
