That said, Wikipedia is the way to find information online

That said, Steve Rubel is right when he says “Wikipedia is the next Google.

When I want to know where to find a place to get my oil changed in San Jose, I use Google. If I want to know more about the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (who doesn’t?), I go straight to Wikipedia.

Wikipedia is where I get the base knowledge that I need to continue researching a topic in any direction I choose.

Google is where I start to search, Wikipedia is where I start to research…but not where I finish.
