Seth's wikipedia post

See Seth Godin's post and interesting discussion re: students using wikipedia and other online sites for homework references.

My thoughts...
Using Wikipedia to begin your fact finding mission is great, citing it is even better, but you need to use it in parallel with other resources to validate your findings. Crowd sourcing is good, but digging a little deeper can only help validate your point is accurate. Multi-sourcing is the key point here.

11/2 UPDATE
Found this excellent wikipedia classroom assignment article through Steve Rubel.
