Wikipedia: Success factors
Wikipedia's success mainly depend on its users - the Wikipedians. In
theory, everybody can be a Wikipedian. This thread is supposed to find
out if the theory holds true in practice.
The idea is that the Wiki-community of Wikipedians is a special group
of people, who have special characteristcs. To account for these
special characteristics, I have provided the following Factor
User factors: - Openness - Neutrality -
Flat hierarchy- Computer Skills - Motivation -
Knowledge factors: - Tacit & Explicit knowledge - Fast changing rate - Peer
Technology factors: - Easy usability - Fast access - Infinite reach,
multilingual - Flexible structure - Safe
All these factors play together to accomplish the goal of succesful
knowledge creation and knowledge sharing.
