A lot of people seem to be upset that Jimmy Wales and Brandon Harris are asking their visitors to contribute financially to Wikipedia. I don’t see a problem with this. Wikipedia has been writing all of your papers since 2001. You all know you’ve done it. Paper is due tomorrow but you want to go out with your friends? So what do you do? You paraphrase the wikipedia page about your subject. Come on people, wikipedia is the reason most of the people my age graduated high school. It’s the reason many of my friends have college diplomas.
On another note, I find it amusing that we laugh at people when they use wikipedia as a source yet we all use it as a source. How comical.
