A better repository of knowledge: Stack Overflow or Wikipedia?

February 6, 2015

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?
