Britannica vs. Wikipedia

Interesting article today in the online Times of London, about a rebuttal published by Encyclopedia Britannica in response to an article in Nature reporting that there wasn't a large difference in accuracy in science entries between Britannica and Wikipedia. What WikiPedia's creator says about WikiPedia is good advice in general, namely to try to use more than one source in examining a topic or issue, to help ensure balance and accuracy. (We have a link to the full version of Britannica on our "Reference" page.)
