I'm definitely overdue for a new post. I've never been much of a journal keeper, so bear with me. I've never actually written that expression. I had to go out on the 'net to find out if it's "bear" or "bare". Most accounts insure that "bare with me" is an invitation to get naked with me. Not what I had in mind. Others however tell me that "bear with me" should be easily identified as a request for someone else to call 911--and animal control.
Oddly, this all brings me back to the topic of discussion this past week--Wikipedia. Do I use it? Sure. Do I trust it? Not really. However, toward the bottom there are actual links to sources. I tend to find those sources more credible. But what is the best way to use it?
Don't hold me to this, since the class I am currently taking is changing the way I think about the interenet, but here is my ideas. I classify Wikipedia in the same category as Google and federated search engines. It's a great place to start, but to find exactly what you're looking for, you will need to start limiting and redefine your search.
That being said, I still find Wikipedia and Yahoo! Answers as good sources of information if you are just curious about what the majority of people believe.
