Wikipedia.jpg

In my show last year I often talked about www.wikipedia.org, the biggest encyclopedia in the world.

Wikipedia is created by free contributions from everyone. The Italian version has now reached a total of 133,000 entries compared to only 40,000 when I did a post about it in May 2005.

Access to Wikipedia is prohibited in China, and not yet in Italy.

You can find a bit of everything, even him, yes him really, the one who doesn’t want to dismiss the Parliament because he hasn’t yet finished his homework and is afraid of not passing the exam.

Here I’m giving you the table of contents, which really is fairly complete, even talking about his gestures and you can read the section dealing with him (or the Italian version that is a bit more complete).

Table of contents

It’s an important piece of work, worth being developed and expanded.

It’s worth extending it to cover all the Party Secretaries.

Let’s have a go at doing it. It’s an activity for transparency.

This is a measure of the importance of Wikipedia.
I think Beppe was damn right when he "advertised" Wiki for what it is: a FREE source of informations.

Killing it (by "educating" its contents) is just the first step towards maiming the internet.

Let's keep it free.
Our knowledge depends on it.

my 2 cents.
