Wikipeida Now Supports Book Creation

Postby Brian » Sat May 08, 2010 10:49 am

Hi, Everyone.

I just read about this on Slashdot. Basically, Wikipedia will let you collect its articles and export them as a PDF or ODF (basically, OpenOffice, a free, open source office suite) format. Seems like a cool idea, but I'm not sure how it'll effect education. Do you think this makes plagiarism all that much more easier for students? :dontknow:

Makes you talk a little lower
About the things you could not show her."

Copy/paste is already about as easy as you can get.
