Wikipedia and Knowledge Communities.

Mitchell Kapor.
President, Open Source Applications Foundation.

The Wikipedia is having a dramatic and unexpected impact as an open 
source-based, community-driven method of creating and disseminating 
valuable knowledge and information on a global basis. How is a free and 
open online encyclopedia, entirely written and edited by its users, 
managing to outstrip conventional media in audience, breadth, and depth? 
What are the implications for other kinds of content, for publishing, 
and for information technology, especially open source-based business 
models in general?
