Cunningham's Law states "the best way to get the right answer on the Internet is not to ask a question; it's to post the wrong answer."
To this end, a number of definitions, articles and general information on H+Pedia may be not only incomplete but in some cases wrong. The power of Cunningham's law relies upon:
- As many people as possible viewing the content
- Informed and critical thinking people analysing content in more depth
- Errors and omissions being noticed
- Efforts being made to feedback about the errors
If either step fails, the process fails as a whole.
It is, however, superior to the alternative form of information dissemination:
- A few experts in a given field write detailed authoritative information
- Few people can read or understand the information
As such, don't be afraid of being wrong when making edits! And don't wait forever to give feedback!
