    • I was once studying a really, I guess irrelevant topic, because nowhere online could I find information about it. My two good scourges were Wikipedia (which the teacher wouldn’t let me use) and quora. If you don’t know, quora is a site where someone asks a question and random people answer it...

    • They don't let you use it because it's too easy. You need to learn to research topics and be able to find good sources on your own, without having all of it basically done for you. Sure you can just use their sources, but they can't just ban you from using everything, so they just say Wikipedia

    • The only problem with internet research is that it lends itself to cherry picking information as opposed to reading a book you get immersed into the material and get a broader view of the subject and are made to see peripheral information that can often change the initial mindset.
