spacer.gif   The exponential rise of The Wikipedia Foundation
Posted by: admin on Wednesday, October 12, 2005 - 01:49 PM
Open Source World "Imagine a world in which every single person is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge."   

"Imagine a world in which every single person is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge."   

That is the ambitious mission statement of  the Wikimedia Foundation. Don't be at all surprised if this statement of intent becomes a day!  The o­nline presence of these projects is fast becoming the 'first stops' for many students and teachers around the globe who seek accurate information, latest news and free media and resources. In fact, many schools and other educational establishments are actually contributing towards its development.


WikiMedia Foundation

The Wikimedia Foundation  is an ambitious collection of projects, but it is already showing signs of  worldwide success, with a series of projects which will eventually become, collectively, the places to seach for news, information and resources that anyone can use!

The projects consist of  a range of  superb resources for educational applications.....

WikiCommons    WikiPedia   WikiQuote     Wiktionary

WikiSpecies       WikiNews          WikiBooks

For educational applications these projects are already proving to be invaluable collection of search tools for high quality information. Information is returned with more speed, relevance, and detail than the major traditional ways of searching for information. With thousands of people contributing o­n a 24/7 basis, these projects are evolving at an exponential rate. The quality of the material is high, and in most cases there are not the 'copyright'  restrictions that you would see o­n material generated by proprietary software companies.

It is not entirely surprising that this project is succeeding: there is a strong Open Source philosophy attached to all of the projects.
