Summary

If the Web is like a library, newsgroups are like a barber shop or beauty salon: The information you get from the former is generally more reliable and complete, but the information you get from the latter—while often pure opinion—is usually more personal, immediate, and fun.

Perhaps the best way to stay informed about any topic is to make sure you frequent both related Web pages and related newsgroups, and use what you learn in each to balance the other.
