As explained in an earlier post, Wiki’s can be a great source of information. That is until someone abuses the power. Wikileaks is a muckraking website, which claims to have post corporate and government documents exposing wrongdoing. Recently however, the website is under scrutiny. It “leaked” classifed war documents from Afghanistan. There were over 90,000 documents from casuality reports to strategy papers. It reveals more information about the war than any other document.
This release of classified information is now being used by the Taliban to target allies and informants. The site is still up and running, however may be shut down. Shutting down the website may be a violation of freedom of speech. This spotlights the good and bad side of Wiki’s.

A wiki, according to Wikipedia, is a website that allows easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked webpages via a web browser. Anyone can edit the page, contribute or even start their own page. Wiki, is Hawiian for fast. The Wiki has become a way to share information fast. When conducting a Google search, usually the first site to appear is Wikipedia. Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia that anyone can add to or edit.
Wiki’s have created some problems for college students and other people doing research. Since Wiki’s are edited and created by anyone, the credibility of the information is debatable.
