Instant Internet Experts

Wikipedia – are the facts accurate? How do we know? Anyone can contribute to Wikipedia, you do not have be an acknowledged expert in the topic. For me this is a huge problem, it just perpetuates the syndrome of the instant internet expert. Go to a traditional encyclopedia like the Britannica and see who the contributors are on the citations. Their credentials are beyond reproach. In Sport science and training that is why we still need to loom at refereed journals and best practice. Don’t be fooled, to learn takes dedication and perseverance beyond reading popular web sites and blogs.
