Who’s right?

Let’s say you’re looking for a piece of information and you only have two sources that offer it, which one would you belive?

  1. Wikipedia
  2. IMDB

Votes please. You can also add the correct birth date of Joan Jett.

  1. Just because collaborative knowledge might be wrong? If you check the history and the talk there seems to be a problem with her birth date – except if the source of the problem is Wikipedia itself.

    IMDB is collaborative as well. But it’s domain specific with crowd that has their interests sort of aligned to it.

    If anywhere, then wisdom of crowds should be displayed in such environment. Alas, it’s not always perfect.
