Truth in Numbers: The Wikipedia Story è un documentario che dovrebbe essere ultimato per la fine di quest’anno e la cui uscita è prevista per il giugno 2008. Tramite una piattaforma wiki, si può contribuire con idee, proposte per il montaggio, nominativi di persone da intervistare. Per arrivare a risultato specifico:
an intimate study of the rise of Internet technology and one man’s (and one hundred million volunteers’) quest to provide free knowledge to the entire world. Jimmy Wales created the collaborative online encyclopedia that anyone can contribute to and edit freely utilizing ‘Wiki’ technology. Wikipedia is one of the most important websites alive today. “We built the 17th [now 9th as of 1/08/07] most popular website on the internet worldwide, how have we done this? It’s you, you’ve done it, I’ve done it we have all done it as volunteers, to me that’s an amazing thing”, Jimmy Wales. Both widely praised and criticized in the media for its user-created encyclopedic, potentially inaccurate, and highly controversial “anyone-can-edit” structure, Wikipedia has quickly become one of the most talked about digital movements of out time.
I can’t say if I would ever support something like that, but I can say that I currently maintain the same position I always have: I am opposed to it.
