Perhaps why, much to my surprise, the computer science areas of Wikipedia
are particularly poor. I would have thought they would be the strongest
areas, but articles on anything which can't be demonstrated with a snippet
of C code are pretty lamentable.
Err, I wasn't finished yet. :)
In general, lots of bullet points, but no sources. Little to no academic
journals cited to analyse how the concepts fit together. On specific
technologies or products the articles are usually pretty helpful. But for
trying to understand general concepts like enterprise resource
planning...Wikipedia will not (currently) even get you off the ground.
(I would change my original statement to refer to information systems or
software engineering rather than just computer science)
