To write a wiki with 100K articles, you don't need
speakers of Hindi, the 46M speakers of Polish or the 4.6M speakers
of Norwegian. All you need is 20 or 50 very determined people,
who really want to write a wiki with 100K articles. This
determination is a mindset, which can be very hard to reach.
Have you tried to convince your parents to contribute actively to
Wikipedia? I suppose that pyramid schemes, religious cults, and
even suicide bombings need a similar mindset. Most people just
wouldn't get it into their head, that this is a good idea. But
once you are determined, the actual job is not so hard to do.
Perhaps we have an understanding of ideas, ideologies, and
mindsets today that is similar to the medical understanding of
viruses and bacteria 200 years ago.
LOL Count this as signed by me, too :) It's an absolutely EXACT picture :)
