Wikipedia quickly became one of the most visited websites in the world and expanded into a huge encyclopedia with a total of nearly 50 million pages. That also led to growing pains, says Emiel Rijshouwer in Studio Erasmus. “There were a lot of visitors, a lot of editors, but also a lot of vandals.”

Right now, Wikipedia has a relatively small group of active contributors, a small group that does most of the work: “An established order that has been active for a fairly long period. In the Netherlands that is about two hundred people.”

“That group of active stakeholders are often highly-educated young Western men. So there are also many subjects that appeal to them: sports and technology are really over-represented. But there are large parts of the world where much less knowledge is available.”
