Why Wikipedia Works Really Well in Practice, Just Not in Theory Watch the newest video from Big Think: 🤍 Join Big Think Edge for exclusive videos: 🤍 Harvard University's Jonathan Zittrain explores the amazing success of Wikipedia, a concept that "works really well in practice, just not in theory." Not only is it a remarkable and unique model of a self-regulating entity, but also its governors and stakeholders are both members of the public at large. Zittrain examines whether Wikipedia is something that can be sustained long-term, whether it will need to adapt or grow in the future, and whether such adaptations and growth could potentially scuttle the entire operation. Finally, Zittrain offers up a suggestion for how to apply Wikipedia in an academic setting: Why not turn Wikipedia articles into long-term research projects? JONATHAN ZITTRAIN: Jonathan Zittrain is a Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Vice Dean for Library and Information Resources for the Harvard Law School Library, and Co-Founder of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. Previously, he was the Chair in Internet Governance and Regulation at Oxford University and a principal of the Oxford Internet Institute. He was also a visiting professor at the New York University School of Law and Stanford Law School. Zittrain’s research interests include battles for control of digital property and content, cryptography, electronic privacy, the roles of intermediaries within Internet architecture, and the useful and unobtrusive deployment of technology in education. He is also the author of The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It, as well as co-editor of the books, Access Denied (MIT Press, 2008), Access Controlled (MIT Press, 2010), and Access Contested (MIT Press, 2011). TRANSCRIPT: Jonathan Zittrain: There's a great saying that Wikipedia works really well in practice, just not in theory. And that is true. Wikipedia's success is so singular, so spectacular that figuring out whether it's a model for anything other than Wikipedia is a puzzle that even the folks behind Wikipedia have faced as they've tried to do Wikisearch, Wikinews, and Wiktionary at different times. But the idea of having a scheme where the day-to-day governance, the day-to-day edits, whether done for substance to improve the truth level of an article in the view of the editor or done for process, oh that edit shouldn't have been made; it breaks the following rule; I'm going to revert it. To have the people doing that be members of the public at large is an extraordinary devolution of responsibility out to people who are in one way or another, implicitly or explicitly sort of taking an oath to subscribe to the principles behind Wikipedia of neutrality, of fairness, of learning — kind of the values of the enlightenment. And can that survive itself over the long haul? I don't know. As you get more and more importance attached to Wikipedia, more and more places that draw from Wikipedia as a source of data, whether it's something like the Wolfram Alpha Knowledge engine or Google to assemble basic facts for results in a search. There may be more and more reason for entities to want to game the results. If you can just put yourself in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest beard or something and you don't actually have to grow anything, it's like well why not? I'll vote myself rich. These are problems that Wikipedia has had to deal with so far relatively successfully. And there's a level of humility that I think it has to maintain in order to recognize new problems, to recognize where there might the structural forms of bias or discrimination going on. And to be able to endure the more targeted intentional attempts to basically poison the well of truth that Wikipedia at least aspires to be. What would I propose as a longer-term way of shoring it up? I think we should solve a problem with a problem. We haven't really figured out in the early 21st century what to do with kids who are in school for hours at a time every day sort of warehoused in daycare; I think it would be wonderful to make as part of the curriculum from, say,...

This is a short video about how the online information repository Wikipedia came into being. NOTE: This video is intended to be a very simple overview of the Wikipedia project. With that said, the video does gloss over Larry Sanger's contributions to Wikipedia, and it oversimplifies his reasons for leaving the project. As pointed out by Larry Sanger himself, Mr. Sanger did approve of, and support Wikipedia as a free, open source, online encyclopedia; however, he was critical of "certain aspects of the Wikipedia project."

Go to wikipedia.org and select the WikiPedia for your desired country. In this video I chose 🤍 2. In the upper-right corner, click “create an account”. Put in all the relevant info such as your username and password. 3. Verify your email and login into your new account. 4. Click on “preferences”, then “editing", and then select "Show me both editor tabs" on the "Editing mode" dropdown menu. 5. Click on "sandbox" in the upper-right corner. This is where you'll be able to make your Wikipedia page. You will be able to write your WikiPedia page in full detail. The first thing you should do is create a heading for your page title. I recommend you use the 'visual editor' since it's more user friendly. The toolbar on top gives you all the tools you need to format your page. You can add citations, references, lists, tables, special characters, internal and external links, and various other effects. This toolbar gives you all the tools to make your Wikipedia page come to life! If you still need help, just go to this link: 🤍 It will teach you and guide you in full detail on how to create your first Wikipedia article. 6. After you written your page, it's time to publish it. You can do this by clicking on the "publish page..." button. This will post your wikipedia page on the sandbox. Which you can then move to the main space. 7. To move your Wikipedia page to the main space you need to meet two requirements. The first one is that you need to have at least a 4-day old account. The second requirement is that you need to have made at least 10 edits with your Wikipedia account. 8. After the page is moved from the sandbox to the main space, you will most likely get plenty of feedback from Wikipedia's community on what can be improved on your page. Your Wikipedia page will most likely not stick on the first try, but don't get discouraged. Just take all the feedback into consideration and try again. 9. If you want to outsource all of this work to a WikiPedia expert, you can do so on Vettted.com You can learn how to create a link from Wikipedia by watching this video: 🤍

How did Wikipedia become the world's fifth most visited website? Its volunteer editors play a huge role (with a small portion of them providing the vast majority of the content), as do its administrators and bots. WikiProjects also coordinate volunteer efforts by improving articles of interest (and helping some become featured articles). Fundraising campaigns that seek donations through banner ads also help, but won't make or break the encyclopedia at this point as the Wikimedia Foundation has successfully created a $100 million endowment. The world's biggest encyclopedia's success is stunning given that it hasn't run ads since it was founded by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger in 2001.

Full Playlist: 🤍 - - Watch more How to Use Internet Search & Web Browsers videos: 🤍 Eager to add your expertise to an article on Wikipedia, the free, online encyclopedia that's one of the world's most visited websites? Follow these helpful hints to edit your first article. Step 1: Consider opening an account If you're not already a registered Wikipedia user, consider becoming one. If you edit a piece without registering, the site will record your IP address publicly in the article's edit history. With an account, you can also start new pages and upload images. To register, click "create account" at the top right of any page. Step 2: Edit text To get started, click on the "edit this page" tab at the top of the page. This will bring you to a new page with a text box containing the editable text of the original page. Just start typing! Get help at any time by clicking the link "Help" in the toolbox on the left of any page. Tip If you don't see an "edit this page" tab at the top, it means the page is protected from editing, probably because of a high incidence of malicious changes. Step 3: Open only what you need If you're making just a small change in one part of the article, look for the "edit" link on the right side of each section, and click on the one next to the passage you want to revise. This allows you to make changes in one section without opening the whole article. Tip Use the tool bar above the way you would with any word processing program. Don't worry about strange punctuation marks that might appear; this is just Wikipedia formatting your copy. Step 4: Source your work If you're adding new information, be sure to provide reliable sources that verify your work, or it will likely be deleted. Detailed instructions on the proper way to cite sources can be found by typing WP:CITE into the search box and hitting "Go." Tip Material in books and newspapers generally is considered reliable; the musings of bloggers are not. And don't bother writing about yourself; it's considered a conflict of interest. Step 5: Explain your edit Briefly explain your changes in the "Edit summary" box at the bottom. Your explanation can run up to 200 characters. Step 6: Review your changes Review your changes by hitting the "Show preview" tab at the bottom. If you want to compare your changes to the text you altered, hit the "Show changes" button. Once you're satisfied with your work, hit the "Save page" button. Step 7: Check it out Check out your contribution, which will appear instantly. But be aware that if there are any inaccuracies in your text, someone will soon be editing you. Wikipedia saves all versions, and anyone can view them. Tip If you have an account, click the "watch" tab to track changes made to the article. On the "My watchlist" page, click "diff," to see exactly what has been changed Step 8: Look for your work Keep an eye on the featured content on Wikipedia's front page; the article with your improvements may show up there someday! Did You Know? Seventy-five percent of Wikipedia edits are made by two percent of users.
From creating a new account, using your Sandbox, and making your first edits to a Wikipedia article.
Let's talk about Wikipedia. Wikipedia is often maligned by teachers and twitter trolls alike as an unreliable source. And yes, it does sometimes have major errors and omissions, but Wikipedia is also the Internet's largest general reference work and as such an incredibly powerful tool. Today we'll discuss using Wikipedia for good - to help us get a birds-eye view of content, better evaluate information with lateral reading, and find trustworthy primary sources.

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia with the aim to allow anyone to edit articles. Wikipedia is the largest and most popular general reference work on the Internet and is ranked among the ten most popular websites. Wikipedia is owned by the nonprofit Wikimedia Foundation. Wikipedia was launched on January 15, 2001, by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger. Sanger coined its name, a portmanteau of wiki and encyclopedia. There was only the English-language version initially,, but it quickly developed similar versions in other languages, which differ in content and in editing practices. With articles, the English Wikipedia is the largest of the more than 290 Wikipedia encyclopedias. Overall, Wikipedia consists of more than 40 million articles in more than 250 different languages and, , it had 18 billion page views and nearly 500 million unique visitors each month.
