I'll be talking to the BBC tomorrow about
Wikipedia, and they're also
interested in stories about Wikipedia outside of US/Europe.
Of the top 20 languages, only Chinese and Japanese are non-European.
However, if anyone can point me to some interesting stories regarding
users in developing countries or how Wikipedia is used in unusual
ways, please let me know.
Uh - what about the majority of English and Spanish speakers who live outside
of Europe? :)
Well, he did say "outside of US/Europe", which must put a pretty big
dent in English. And both English and Spanish, are technically
speaking, European languages, so his second paragraph is probably
technically accurate, from a pedantic point of view. But especially
with Spanish, you do have a point: I wonder how many South American
contributors we have there (and what of Brazillian Portugese?)...
