Succes of Wikipedia

Succes factors according to Larry Sanger (co-founder of Wikipedia)

  • Open content license (not for commercial use)
  • Focus on the encyclopedia (focus, not a dictionary, discussion platform)
  • Openness (everybody can contribute)
  • Ease of editing (no/few knowledge of system is required)
  • Collaborate radically, don’t sign articles (the individu is not the bottleneck)
  • Offer unedited, unapproved content for further development (article need not be finished)
  • Neutrality
  • Start with a core of good people (writers that support the general objective and are willing to contribute)
  • Enjoy the Google effect (easily found via Google search engine)
