Exercise 11: Wikis

I do like Wikipedia and it has been used quite a bit in our house on a Sunday night for a homework assignment that has just been "remembered"! It is very well laid out and appealing to the "younger set" - thats half the battle - although it can't be taken as 100% factual it seems pretty accurate.
I also liked the Book Lovers Wiki by Princeton Public Library and was particularly thrilled to see a review of Kiwi author Mark Haddon and several copies of his books available - it shows how easy it is to "infiltrate" anywhere and anyplace!!
Though had to laugh at the Update notice saying that anyone wanting to change Wikis now needs email confirmation due to "Vandalism", what next, Graffiti!!!
