Hey everyone, this is Dan and Jordan and we are your discussion leaders this week! Before you come to class tomorrow, please start thinking about these questions:
- What makes Wikipedia stand out from other quick information sites?
- Do you think the invention of Wikipedia will force real encyclopedias to be available for free? What about at a discounted price?
- If real encyclopedias were available for free, would you still use Wikipedia?
- Do you think that Wikipedia will have ads in the future to afford site upkeep? Would ads hinder your experience?
Please watch the video below to prepare for discussion (it’s only three minutes long!).
