Must-Read Mazar

As usual, Rochelle's right on the money in Random Access Mazar: Dangerous Waters. The whole validity of web resources vs printed texts drives me crazy. As an academic, I am continuously confronted with shoddy, inaccurate and down right wrong information. And I'm talking about peer reviewed scholarly journals and texts published by academic publishers. Don't tell me that the net is a place where you cannot trust the information. Get your own house in order first!!! Lazy gits. I'm tired of hearing how the establishment wants to shoot down things like wikipedia because they cannot control it, when if they were willing to participate they could make it even more useful than it already is. Oh, Rochelle says this better.

And alex has something to say on this topic too.
