Every year, Wikipedia asks for donations. Like clockwork, I’ve been ignoring it — every year.
That’s all changing. This year I’m donating, and you should too.
Why the sudden change of heart? Wikipedia has transformed into a source rather than a website for me. Its inclusion into Spotlight search in iOS 9 has made it something I use more often.
As a result, I find myself checking there often when I’m not quite sure I’ve got facts straight, or need to find details not readily available on the Web at-large. It’s still not a citable source, but the information is typically correct.
