Mapping Controversy in Wikipedia Wikipedia, the collection of 37 million articles that anyone can edit, is defined by conflict. The ability for anyone to shape this global repository of knowledge inevitable means that we are presented with fascinating, shocking, and often hilarious discussions on the talk pages of articles. Just check out the talk pages of articles about Barack Obama , the Persian Gulf , and Freddie Mercury (or, if you really want to waste an afternoon, dive into Wikipedia's collection of ' lamest edit wars '). So, a natural question for my colleagues ( Taha Yasseri , Anselm Spoerri , and János Kertész ) and I was whether we can model and map the controversiality of Wikipedia articles. Does controversy have distinct geographies?

A year’s worth of Wikipedia research Twelve years after its launch, Wikipedia continues to attract a large amount of attention from scholarly research trying to understand what made this one of the most remarkable collaborative efforts in history and what makes it work. Researchers have called Wikipedia “our Everest” (because of its complexity and cultural importance) or “the Drosophila (fruit fly) of social software” (because the project’s transparency and freely available data make it accessible and popular as a research subject). In 2011, we launched a monthly Wikimedia Research Newsletter with the aim of covering recent academic research about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. Published jointly by the Wikimedia Research Committee and the Signpost (the English Wikipedia’s community-edited newspaper), it has established itself as a comprehensive outlet enabling both researchers and Wikipedians to stay on top of current research, aiming to facilitate exchange between these two communities.
The Daily Dot - Is Wikipedia's front page for sale? As the sixth-most visited website globally , Wikipedia is a hot piece of digital real estate. The online encyclopedia is currently struggling to address the rise of publicists and marketing agents who turn a profit by generating articles on behalf of their clients. "The fact is that Wikipedia's main page's multi-millions of pageviews per year are being turned into a commodity by the PR industry," writes Wikipedia Editor Tim Davenport, who goes by the username Carrite . "That must stop."
How To Make Your Own Books From Wikipedia The Wikimedia Foundation home page says – Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. With nearly 3 million articles in the English version alone Wikipedia along with its sister wikis is an Alibaba’s treasure trove of information.
By Zen Gardner While H.G. Wells has been popularized to today’s generations as a profoundly prophetic science fiction writer, he was known in his day as a very busy boy getting the New World in Order…literally. An outspoken proponent of everything global, Wells pushed a consistent theme of a global community and held a deep disdain for common humanity, a typical elitist eugenicist trait which he also championed. Why was he so spot on with his forecasts, be it technology or societal changes? H.G. Wells, Wikipedia and the World Brain Matrix
7 Apr Deep in the bowels of the internet, I came across an exhaustive list of interesting Wikipedia articles by Ray Cadaster. It’s brilliant reading when you’re bored, so I got his permission to post the top 50 here.
KYIV, Ukraine — Click on a Wikipedia topic about optometry in the Polish language or Newtonian mechanics in Ukrainian and the article that pops up may well be a college student thesis. That’s because universities in Poland and Ukraine are exploring new requirements. Instead of cribbing research from Wikipedia for papers that will probably only gather dust, advocates of the idea say students would be better off writing their own Wikipedia articles. Although critics warn that Wikipedia articles are no substitute for rigorous academic papers, supporters say more than simply putting more information at public disposal, erasing boundaries between the internet and academia will invigorate scholarship by enabling it to benefit everyone. Will Wikipedia replace the academic thesis?
nojhan/Flickr A recent dust-up between Wikipedia and Canada’s largest university raises questions about how collaborative the popular website that bills itself as “the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit” truly is. The online information portal recently took a professor from the University of Toronto to task for one of his classroom assignments. Steve Joordens urged the 1,900 students in his introductory psychology class to start adding content to relevant Wikipedia pages. The assignment was voluntary, and Joordens hoped the process would both enhance Wikipedia’s body of work on psychology while teaching students about the scientist’s responsibility to share knowledge. University of Toronto assignment annoys Wikipedia editors
