It made the news last year because various academics dismissed it as being biased and inaccurate, only for their research to show that the same accusations could be levelled at such august bodies of knowledge as Encyclopedia Britannica too.
But, let's face it, the reason Wikipedia is so good is for the sheer depth and range of its articles.
Here are my 3 favourite Wikipedia entries - in traditional reverse order:
- Surrey (because I like reading about my locality)
- BBC TV Drama (because it was great and could be again)
- Mike The Headless Chicken (because it's a bit odd)
