I am the first to warn my students about the flaws inherent to overdependence on Wikipedia. That said, I am a huge advocate of the site. Is it because it is an incredibly handy guide to, um, everything? Sure, sure. But the main thing I'm addicted to these days are the debates on the validity of certain articles, especially those that concern politically, economically, and/or socially controversial or sensitive issures. Wikipedia's article on Appalachia is a great case in point. Call me insane, but the talk:Appalachia page warrents daily lurking.
