@anon44107 - The thing about Wikipedia is that it has many different people that can contribute to it; in fact, almost anyone can write or edit an article on Wikipedia. That being said, many colleges and companies do not consider Wikipedia as a reliable source for information and, in some cases, even forbid the use of its information.
What you find on Wikipedia might not necessarily be true all the time or might only be partially true. Researching it is definitely a good way to follow up. Let me know what you find elsewhere!
