College students take to Wikipedia to rewrite the wrongs of Internet science

“The time had come to choose a major at Caltech, and Alice Michel had a notion that intrigued her. But when she looked it up on Wikipedia, what she got was a whole lot of gobbledygook.It was, she learned, an “interdisciplinary field of scientific research.” It had something to do with “the biosphere, the lithosphere and/or the atmosphere.”Here was a subject worthy of an entire area of study on campus, but its Wikipedia entry was “totally useless.” (via LA Times)
