The Internet is a great help to find information on almost everything. Its like a universal library where anyone can just walk in and explore the universe of knowledge with simple and readily available tools like PC, Modem etc. There is very little entry fee (Internet Time and Telephone bill) and most of the information available is free.
However, one niggling question that frequently comes back is - how reliable is this information ? Can we depend upon this to start a venture ? Is it as reliable as information given in printed books and reports ?
There is no shortcut or ready answer to this question.
Indeed, there are extremely good and reliable sources of information
in Internet - but there are also websites which are of questionable
background. Like the fraud bank site Nigerian scam artists created
few months back to defraud gullible surfers.
