The Truth According To Wikipedia
Having to learn or find information, most people usually immediately refer to Wikipedia for the answers. The website, which has dubbed itself as the “free encyclopedia of the people”, attracts millions of traffic daily. It’s not just a source of reference for students who want to finish their papers. Everyone who want to learn more about a certain topic turn to the site for information.
But is Wikipedia’s reliabilty 100% accurate? And are people aware of how this site operates and where the information they are gathering are coming from?
This documentary, as directed by IJsbrand van Veelen, delves deep into the popularity of Wikipedia and examines whether or not the site is helpful or harmful.
In his exploration, van Veelen learns that Wikipedia, in its beginnings, only had five employees working under it. And as it is today, the site operates through donations and fundings.
Interviews from well-known and significant personalities such as Wikipedia founders Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger, Wikipedia contributors, and Encyclopædia Britannica’s Editor-in-Chief Robert McHenry, provide a clearer insight to the validity of the website. It also touches on censorship in China, and how finding free access to any information has significantly changed the way of the world.Published on January 24, 2010 · Filed under: Science, Technology
