Wikipedia is awesome!

However, use it with caution; know that there are errors which are almost inevitable with the nature of a wiki. You should try to confirm the accuracy with more authoritative sources, or at least cross reference uncertain facts with 2 or 3 sources.

Wiki is Hawaiian for “fast; quick.” As a noun, wiki means “a website that allows anyone to add, delete or revise content by using a web browser.”
