I believe despite Wikipedia’s chaotic model, Wikipedia will stand the test of time and will be used in the future. With the growing increase in internet and phone development, people will turn to the internet for information. Wikipedia is a useful site to search for quick information that were submitted by people all over the world. That is what makes Wikipedia unique, it is the people that generates and shares the information through via link and other sources. I think this is a more efficient method to gather information on a subject rather than search individual sites and other sources where in Wikipedia the majority of related sources and data are listed for the user. This may be Wikipedia’s strengths and weakness, though efficient in gathering information; the site is only as large as the number of people using Wikipedia and number of editors contributing to the site. If Wikipedia can gain more users and editors to submit accurate data more, I believe Wikipedia will thrive in the future. If people also were to see Wikipedia as a more credible source, the definable more people will use the site as a search engine similar to google.
