[HDGEM] Wikipedia has become the go to reference site because anybody can make entries.

Being an open system with a series of checks and balances to help drive towards quality turns out to be a much better way to make a quality encyclopedia than old top-down methods.

If you see an error in Wikipedia, you can fix it. Your fix will be reviewed by others, and if it is an actual improvement it will tend to survive, and if it is itself an error it will tend to be removed.

None of this happens by magic nor automatically. It requires a good culture of thoughtful people.
