How I Got Smart

Wikipedia

My favorite avoidance activity: Editing Wikipedia. Each time I edit, I get the sense I've made the world a little bit better. And every time I start playing Wikipedia, I get just a little bit smarter.

Wikipedia is inherently unreliable, of course. (cf, Michael Scott's thoughts on Wikipedia.) And I'd never quote it in public. But it's nearly always my go-to place for getting general background information on an unfamiliar topic.

Which online resources do you use for research?
