La llei de Cunningham diu que "la millor manera d'aconseguir una resposta correcta a internet no és plantejant la qüestió, sinó divulgant una resposta equivocada."

Es diu així per Ward Cunningham, pare del wiki. Segons Steven McGeady,[1] l'autor de la llei, la Viquipèdia podria ser l'exemple més conegut d'aquesta llei.[2]

La llei de Cunningham pot considerar-se l'equivalent d'Internet del refrany francès "prêcher le faux aboca savoir le vrai" (predica el falsedat per saber la veritat). A "Duty Calls," el webcòmic xkcd fa referència a un concepte semblant.[3]

Cunningham's Law: The best way to get the right answer on the Internet is not to ask a question, it's to post the wrong answer. N.b. named after Ward Cunningham, a colleague of mine at Tektronix. This was his advice to me in the early 1980s with reference to what was later dubbed USENET, but since generalized to the Web and the Internet as a whole. Ward is now famous as the inventor of the Wiki. Ironically, Wikipedia is now perhaps the most widely-known proof of Cunningham's Law.
