Microsoft Update and Wikipedia

Website Wednesday - Microsoft Update and Wikipedia

Microsoft Update
If you have a Windows-based computer you should visit the Microsoft Update web site weekly. Microsoft Update includes patches and updates on Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Office 2003 and beyond. You must be using Internet Explorer when you visit the Microsoft Update web site. I suggest you visit once a month and select the "Express" option.

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia written collaboratively by its readers. There are multiple languages represented, though you'll probably mostly be interested in English. The site is a Wiki, meaning that anyone, including you, can edit almost any article right now by clicking on the edit this page link that appears at the top of the page. It's policies include a community-enfoce neutral point-of-view (NPOV)and free documentation license (GFDL).

While a NPOV is attempted, new articles or less-popular entries will be written with the particular bent of the initial author. The site works because anyone can contribute and edit. NOTE: Wikipedia should probably not be used as a primary source for your term paper. :-)
