Transcript of It must be true!

It must be true, it's on the Internet! Many pages are added to the Internet everyday. Some sites are obviously misleading. This is what we refer to as humor. Believe it or not, there may be
some misleading sites out there. This site looks legit. Heck, it is Martin Luther King.org
It has to be good info. Some are not so easy to spot. For example. How good of a source is it? Turns out, not very good. Here is how I found out. I went to a site called Easy Who Is. Typed in the domain. NOTE http:// is not part of the name. The group that owns the
site is called "stormfront". A quick Google search finds out about Stormfront. Might not be the best place
to look. http://www.flickr.com/photos/59052489@N00/3072269462/ There is a flood of information
on the Internet. How do I find good
Stuff? You can tell some things about
a site by who links to it. By typing link: and then the site, a list of links are generated. Wikipedia is not the
bad thing some people think it is. It is not any worse than a
book encyclepedia. It is a starting place
not an authority. Get links from the bottom
of a Wikipedia page. There are search engines other than
Google, MSN, and Bing. Some help with academic
research. Meta search engines Search searchers. The trick is to become
information savy. This is true for any source. Find more than one source
to back up your findings. Don't make stuff up
or believe made up stuff. http://www.wolframalpha.com/ http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/ How about this site?
