Wikipedia Gains Credibility

In an article, via AFP, one learns that Wikipedia is now a homework assignment for college students.

Wikipedia, the upstart Internet encyclopedia that most universities forbid students to use, has suddenly become a teaching tool for professors. Recently, university teachers have swapped student term papers for assignments to write entries for the free online encyclopedia.

Quite the turnaround given that it is considered, in academic circles, bad form to cite Wikipedia.
