What type of thing is Wikipedia

  • Reference work – compendium of information, usually of a specific type, compiled in a book for ease of reference That is, the information is intended to be quickly found when needed Reference works are usually referred to for particular pieces of information, rather than read beginning to end The writing style used in these works is informative; the authors avoid use of the first person, and emphasize facts
    • Encyclopedia – type of reference work or compendium holding a comprehensive summary of information from either all branches of knowledge or a particular branch of knowledge Encyclopedias are divided into articles or entries, which are usually accessed alphabetically by article name Encyclopedia entries are longer and more detailed than those in most dictionaries
      • Internet encyclopedia project online encyclopedia – large database of useful information, accessible via the World Wide Web
  • Database – organized collection of data The data is typically organized to model aspects of reality in a way that supports processes requiring information For example, modelling the availability of rooms in hotels in a way that supports finding a hotel with vacancies
    • Online database – database accessible from a network, including from the Internet such as on a web page
  • Website – collection of related web pages containing images, videos or other digital assets A website is hosted on at least one web server, accessible via a network such as the Internet or a private local area network through an Internet address known as a Uniform Resource Locator All publicly accessible websites collectively constitute the World Wide Web
    • Wiki – website that allows the creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor Wikis are typically powered by wiki software and are often developed and used collaboratively by multiple users Examples include community websites, corporate intranets, knowledge management systems, and note services The software can also be used for personal notetaking
  • Community – group of interacting people with social cohesion, who may share common values
    • Community of action – community in which participants endeavor collaboratively to bring about change
    • Community of interest – community of people who share a common interest or passion These people exchange ideas and thoughts about the given passion, but may know or care little about each other outside of this area The common interest on Wikipedia is knowledge
    • Community of purpose – community that serves a functional need, smoothing the path of the member for a limited period surrounding a given activity For example, researching a topic on Wikipediaorg, buying a car on autobytelcom, or antique collectors on icollectorcom or individual
    • Virtual community – social network of individuals who interact through specific media, potentially crossing geographical and political boundaries in order to pursue mutual interests or goals
      • Online community – virtual community that exists online and whose members enable its existence through taking part in membership ritual An online community can take the form of an information system where anyone can post content, such as a Bulletin board system or one where only a restricted number of people can initiate posts, such as Weblogs
        • Wiki community – users, especially the editors, of a particular wiki
  • Collective memory – shared pool of information held in the memories of two or more members of a group

    • Deletionism and inclusionism in Wikipedia – opposing philosophies of editors of Wikipedia concerning the appropriate scope of the encyclopedia, and the appropriate point for a topic to be included as an encyclopedia article or be "deleted"
    • Notability in English Wikipedia – metric used to determine topics meriting a dedicated encyclopedia article It attempts to assess whether a topic has "gained sufficiently significant attention by the world at large and over a period of time" as evidenced by significant coverage in reliable secondary sources that are independent of the topic
    • Reliability of Wikipedia – Wikipedia is open to anonymous and collaborative editing, so assessments of its reliability usually include examinations of how quickly false or misleading information is removed An early study conducted by IBM researchers in 2003—two years following Wikipedia's establishment—found that "vandalism is usually repaired extremely quickly — so quickly that most users will never see its effects" and concluded that Wikipedia had "surprisingly effective self-healing capabilities"
    • Vandalism on Wikipedia – the act of editing the project in a malicious manner that is intentionally disruptive Vandalism includes the addition, removal, or other modification of the text or other material that is either humorous, nonsensical, a hoax, spam or promotion of a subject, or that is of an offensive, humiliating, or otherwise degrading in nature There are various measures taken by Wikipedia to prevent or reduce the amount of vandalism

History of Wikipedia

History of Wikipedia – Wikipedia was formally launched on 15 January 2001 by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger, using the concept and technology of a wiki pioneered by Ward Cunningham Initially, Wikipedia was created to complement Nupedia, an online encyclopedia project edited solely by experts, by providing additional draft articles and ideas for it Wikipedia quickly overtook Nupedia, becoming a global project in multiple languages and inspiring a wide range of additional reference projects

  • Nupedia – the predecessor of Wikipedia Nupedia was an English-language Web-based encyclopedia that lasted from March 2000 until September 2003 Its articles were written by experts and licensed as free content It was founded by Jimmy Wales and underwritten by Bomis, with Larry Sanger as editor-in-chief
  • Wayback Machine – digital time capsule created by the Internet Archive non-profit organization, based in San Francisco, California The service enables users to see archived versions of web pages including Wikipedia across time, which the Archive calls a "three dimensional index" Internet Archive bought the domain waybackmachineorg for their own site It is currently in its beta test
    • Wikipedia on the Wayback Machine
  • Founders of Wikipedia
    • Larry Sanger – chief organizer 2001–2002 of Wikipedia He moved on and founded Citizendium
    • Jimmy Wales – historically cited as a co-founder of Wikipedia, though he has disputed the "co-" designation, declaring himself the sole founder Wales serves on the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit charitable organization he helped establish to operate Wikipedia, holding its board-appointed "community founder" seat
  • Academic studies about Wikipedia – In recent years there have been numerous academic studies about Wikipedia in peer-reviewed publications This research can be grouped into two categories The first analyzed the production and reliability of the encyclopedia content, while the second investigated social aspects, such as usage and administration Such studies are greatly facilitated by the fact that Wikipedia's database can be downloaded without needing to ask the assistance of the site owner
  • Flagged revisions – software extension to the MediaWiki wiki software that allows moderation of edits to Wiki pages It was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation for use on Wikipedia and similar wikis hosted on its servers On June 14, 2010, English Wikipedia began a 2-month trial of a similar feature known as pending changes In May 2011, this feature was removed indefinitely from all articles, after a discussion among English Wikipedia editors
