我们的虚拟中世纪

在线百科全书维基百科全书是有史以来人们所尝试、或许也是业已实现的最为印象深刻的集体智力工程。这一工程要求任何关心知识未来的人的关注和贡献。

由于维基百科在网络空间站稳脚跟的速度,其实际的意义反到基本上不为人所知。自从2007年维基百科创立六周年以来,它在一直稳居全世界最受浏览网页的前十名。每天,12亿互联网用户的7%要查阅这一网站,其使用率的增长要快于整体互联网的使用。

维基百科全书是一部任何有少量时间、表达能力以及电脑技能的人都可以投稿的百科全书。任何人都可以改变任何条目或者增加一个新条目,而结果将会立即出现,让所有人都看到,或许也可能让其他人提出质疑。

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.
