I found this fascinating quote today:

Over the years, courts have – with increasing frequency cited Wikipedia – as authority for some aspect of the case at hand.  In preparation for writing this article, I logged onto Westlaw and did a quick search for the word “Wikipedia” in the ‘all federal cases’ directory (ALLFEDS).  This quick search returned 281 results.  The federal courts, it would seem, are becoming more comfortable with ‘wikis’, at least with Wikipedia.cyberesq.wordpress.com, Cyber-Esq., Jan 2010

You should read the whole article.

How many of you are using Wiki for research? I would love to hear from you about the good and the bad.
