WebWord.com: "Netchecking"

WebWord.com: Netchecking

People are getting tired of other people making claims about things without first checking their facts using Google or some other search engine. [...] Just for fun, I'll call this netchecking, unless someone has a better term for it. "Next time you write something, would you please netcheck it?"
My team members have started checking Google before asking me for programming language reference information, because they know I always direct them there first (alternatively look it up on Google myself :-) For e.g. Java / JavaScript and probably loads of other programming languages, the web is a treasure trove of API documentation, code snippet libraries etc etc...
