Schools ban Wikipedia

The web is one of the world’s best search tools, but the clutter from uncredible sources ruining the experience.

They estimate that there will be over 500 million blogs in the next few years, most of them in Nigeria, and the search engines must develop a way to filter-out the crap. Just look at this Google search for “George Washington”:

It disgusts me that Wikipedia has no problem exposing children to profanity when doing a book report.

My article on evaluating credibility information on the web is just a start, and it’s only by verifying the credential of web authors that people can trust the reliability of the work.

Please join me in encouraging Google to PR0 Wikipedia and sent its garbage back to the 50th page of search results, where all anonymous drivel belongs.
