The online reference everyone goes to first is Wikipedia. There’s a good reason for that. The definitive statements you find there relating to concepts, objects, institutions, individuals and businesses and more, including references and citations to rely upon, are what Wikipedia provides – and has been providing – since the first days of the internet. Folks have found Wikipedia’s information to be reliable, partly because anyone at all can enter new information or edit information already there.

One of the tactics for encouraging greater accuracy and transparency in government – for any country – is the possibility to allow new and additional information to be submitted anonymously by various Wikipedia editors, but with the specific internet protocol address that is assigned only to the Legislative body of Congress – or whatever the corresponding branch of that country’s government, if observed elsewhere.
Dowd’s article features a few dozen Wiki edits made specifically to photographs, which seem to be very straightforward. You may want to see for yourself the kinds of corrections made by individuals who are employed, at some level, in the U.S. Congress.
On the subject of proper editing, writing for the Observer in the area of education and technology, Brady Dale reports about another fail-safe method that Wikipedia employs. Aaron Halfaker and the Wikimedia Foundation explain the need for the artificial intelligence capacity known as the Objective Revision Evlauation Service, which determines what changes are eligible for publication when someone decides to edit a Wikipedia page: “I think we who engineer tools for social communities, have a responsibility to the communities we are working with to empower them.”
The general public now contributes on a voluntary basis financially, for the privilege of using this very valuable resource. Some folks who are very familiar with Wikipedia have now made themselves available to the public as independent professional Wikipedia writers.
