Wikipedia?

I have always been told to stay away from Wikipedia (unless you can verify it's information elsewhere) because it can be unreliable because other people can edit it. Is that not the case here? Thanks!


Hi mrw122015,

You are not wrong about Wikipedia's info being unverified, but I still find it a valuable resource. For topics that are less opinion based, like my topic the science of sound, I usually find the info to be consistent with the expert info I also seek out. It also provides great lists of related topics to look into that often provide some surprise finds that lead my search down helpful and unexpected paths.

Also, all the images on wiki are public domain, so they are an amazing resource when creating any document that might be shown externally.

You are super right though, I should add more clarity in that section about the importance of cross referencing all the info you find, so thanks for the great feedback!

Happy inventing!
Paige

Hi Paige,

What you said makes sense. Thank you for the clarification! (And thanks for pointing out up above that I reminded you to add that info)
