The Wikipedia is cool and should be is used and developed in universities and schools everywhere, IMHO. Closed documentation on encyclopedic type knowledge has no moral justification, IMHO. But the Wikipedia should be used with an understanding of what it is.

About WikipediaEdit

refs experimentEdit

The world is round[2]:  and orbits another world[3]:3,14,15, yet some[4] claim that it's flat. Mikołaja also says it's roundish with a reference duplicating biblio info contained in the refs= list.[3] and don't forget a subpage list of references.[5] Maybe also see ref[6]

for the curiousEdit

If you're curious enough to have scrolled down this far and want to see a popular-level, possibly frequently updated account of original research that I've been involved in or find interesting, and other things of interest, then feel free to check out my blog. It's CC-BY, so in terms of copyright, material could be used in the Wikipedia, but for Wikipedia purposes, better would be to go to the research-level material that some of it points to. Just as other Wikipedians whose real-life role is in the search for knowledge tend to do, I'm trying to keep these roles separate.
