Thing #16, Wiki's

I thought the wiki's were somewhat interesting, but at the same time, I'm so tired of wiki's. Since wikipedia came, everyone has piggybacked off of it and made their own variation. It's a good thing, but at the same time it has me wary because anyone can say anything about any subject, whether they're telling the truth or not. The honor system keeps a webpage mainly accurate, but at the same time, many different opinions can clash, so it's hard to keep it unbiased. The library wiki's seem to be trying to show a few things the libraries have to offer, but they don't have the same effect as going to an actual library. There are reviews of some books on BookLoversWiki, but there aren't a lot. Hopefully in time these sites will grow, but for now they don't have a lot of information on them.
