Interesting misconception

04.09.2005 23:55

Wikimania got some media coverage in Slovenia and on several occasions I had an opportunity to listen to a conversation about Wikipedia between people that are not exactly computer enthusiasts. I was surprised to hear that many people seem to think Wikipedia is some kind of a search engine, just like Google. After all, you can go to Wikipedia, enter a subject you are interested in in a search box, click a button and if you are lucky, you will get a lot information about that subject printed on your screen. As far as these people are concerned, Google works in exactly the same way.
