It’s Time To Update And Improve The Wikipedia Low-Carb Page

Filed under: Events — @ November 20, 2007

Today’s society has so many more opportunities for information than at any other period of time in the history of the world. It totally boggles the mind to think how far the information technology has come since I was in high school less than two decades ago. But thanks to the Internet and all the advancements that have taken place online with the advent of MySpace, YouTube, Google, and the blogosphere, just about anything and everything you could ever want to know about something is right here on the World Wide Web.

Unfortunately, not everything you read on the Internet is completely accurate. GASP! I know, this comes as a shock to some of you, but it’s true–there are lies and distortions everywhere online and you have to be discerning about what you believe by looking at the sources for what you read. I encourage people to do that with my blog and anything else you read. It’s just smart to do that.

But not everyone checks behind the claims made on certain web sites, including the ever-popular online encyclopedia that has come under fire for inaccurate information known as Wikipedia. The first time I saw this web site, I was enthralled. TOO COOL! I wish they had this when I was doing research projects in high school and college!

However, I quickly discovered that not everything on Wikipedia is 100% accurate. Since ANYBODY can change the information on the site, controversial subjects can be addressed from one particular point of view to the exclusion of the other. Just take a look at the the “Low-Carbohydrate Diet” page on Wikipedia and you’ll see what I mean.
