Hello Reader,
I am back with a another mind nourishing article about Wikipedia! a free Encyclopedia. Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia that provides unique and informative content, and that is why it ranked number 1 in google for most of the search query.

Jimmy Wales recalls how he assembled “a ragtag band of volunteers,” gave them tools for collaborating and created Wikipedia, the self-organizing, self-correcting, never-finished online encyclopedia.

Today, Wikipedia is ranked among the top ten global websites (Alexa) and has an estimated 365 million readers worldwide. Despite such popularity and regular usage by millions of people, I have constantly heard my friends complain about the reliability of user-collaborative information. However, none of these friends ever told me that they have stopped checking Wikipedia for information. Their standard refrain is there is no alternative!

Actually there are alternatives. Encyclopædia Britannica is a trustworthy source of information which was regularly used during our school days. Earlier, its website had a restricted access and all articles were updated once a year by a team of experts. Now after facing serious threat from Wikipedia, it is freely available and allows user submitted content as well. In fact, after 244 years of publication, the Encyclopaedia Britannica has stopped its print edition since 2012!
