A better repository of knowledge: Stack Overflow or Wikipedia?

Personally, I find that I increasingly get my information from Stack Overflow.

I can’t think of the last time that I visited Wikipedia; it’s probably been a couple of years.

For me Stack Overflow is a richer, more vibrant and useful repository of knowledge.

Wikipedia is an on-line version of an encyclopedia. Perhaps the encyclopedia paradigm is dead?

Thoughts?

    Depends on what you’re looking for. The other day, I was interested in pumpernickel bread. StackOverflow had nothing. [LOL] But when I needed in-depth information on XML Schemas, Wiki didn’t cut it. SO led me to Xfront.com.

    BTW, thanks for the really useful and understandable information.
