Answer Engines

It is the existence of powerful search engines which have made the web so useful. However, finding answers to questions via search engines is a lot less predictable than the older habit of looking up an encyclopaedia. For this reason, 'answer engines' were created. These are like online encyclopaedias which deliver only a few answers but are detailed, usually accurate and useful when you now what you are looking for. However there are other free services using a peer-to-peer approach. One of these  is Wikipedia. If you are an expert in a field, you can submit an article others will check before it is added to the site. Wikipedia is available in over 0 languages. Because it is so open, sometimes material is not as reliable or authoritative as it should be, so it is wise to check before using it.


1. Why might a printed encyclopaedia be considered more reliable than Wikipedia? In what way might it be less reliable?

2. Use Wikipedia to research the topics from this chapter
a) Internet Protocol
b) Firewall
c) Cookie
Write a paragraph on each, reporting on how reliable you believe the information is and why?

3. Use a search engine to find out about the same three topics. Which method is faster? Which gave the most information? Which method was more accurate?
