One fundamental flaw (of many) with Wikipedia is that its articles should be based on secondary sources. This means it will never rise above the level of a Masters-level paper. If Albert Einstein were still alive and wrote an article on Relativity, it would be criticized for not citing any sources. Older encyclopedias often engage experts or outstanding instructors to write articles.
