Thirst for Knowledge: How Wiki Works

Everybody uses Wikipedia, and anybody can edit it. So where does all that information come from? If anybody can edit Wikipedia, why isn’t it riddled with errors and hoaxes?

This month New Zealand’s own Wikipedian-at-Large, Dr Mike Dickison, will teach you how to assess the reliability of an article, fix mistakes, and what we in New Zealand can do to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of us.
