Hukum Cunningham menyatakan bahwa "jalan terbaik untuk memperoleh jawaban yang benar di Internet adalah bukan dengan mengajukan pertanyaan, namun dengan cara mengirimkan jawaban yang salah."

Konsep ini dinamai dengan Ward Cunningham, pendiri wiki. Menurut Steven McGeady,[1] penulis bertopik hukum, Wikipedia mungkin contoh yang umum diketahui dari penerapan hukum ini.[2]

Hukum Cunningham dapat dipandang di Internet sepadan dengan ungkapan dalam bahasa Perancis "prêcher le faux pour savoir le vrai" (ajarkan yang salah untuk mengetahui yang benar). Dalam "Panggilan Tugas," xkcd juga mereferensikan konsep yang mirip.[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.
