My favorite quotes from "The Truth According to Wikipedia"

Watch the film on YouTube (below) to hear these great quotes and many more in context. I agree with Ndesanjo Macha on these points he makes in the film:

We need to "decolonize cyberspace" -- and Wikipedia is one way we're doing it.

"Web 2.0 is participatory...there is a sense of collective ownership."

"Freedom of expression is not just for journalists."

I'm an advocate for "the sum of all knowledge - expert and non-expert; one is not less than the other."

"The concept of 'truth' is socially constructed...and historically and culturally specific."

The original meaning of amateurs is people who love what they do.
