Wikipedia’s Co-Founder Wants to Make It More Useful to Academe

“But I still would say that an encyclopedia is just not the kind of thing you would reference as a source in an academic paper. Particularly not an encyclopedia that could change instantly and not have a final vetting process. I think in the future we might move to that.”

-Jimmy Wales, co-founder of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, who says proposed changes might make it useful for colleges.
