Back when I was studying physics, I’d often need to look up fancy-sounding technical terminology on Google. And when I did, more often than not, the first hit would be a Wikipedia article.
But as great as Wikipedia entries are, it never quite seemed as though they were written at my level. They almost always went way over my head, or seemed far too simple for my use case. This happened so consistently that I’m tempted to call it a Law of the Internet: “No technical Wikipedia entry can be simultaneously comprehensible and informative”.
