"After reading Gardner’s article, I went to the Wikipedia article on Wikipedia itself as a sort of test. I found a lengthy piece (which had last been updated just minutes before) in which the author(s) clearly strived for balance. There were twelve major headings, 286 footnotes and many references for further study. I was impressed to discover that it is the most popular general reference work site on the internet, with 365 million readers, 24 million articles (over 4.1 million in English) in 285 languages, and growing by about 800 new articles a day."
