Yes, I'm sorry, but currently the documentary is only available to watch
free at this site in the United States. It does download and play well on
a moderately fast connection. The DVD does not seem to be available yet.

The movie is gravely flawed by coverage of poorly founded opinions of
people who either were never familiar with how Wikipedia works or are
long out of touch such as Ed Poore and Larry Sanger. There is even
considerable coverage of the "bumblebee could never fly" variety. Here is
a list of some of the people who appeared:


The portrait of Jimmy Wales is touching, inspiring even. He's done Ayn
Rand proud, although one doubts she could have recognized it.

The comments by James Woolsey, Director of the CIA during the Clinton
administration are particularly interesting.

Cade Metz of The Register appears, but not Gregory Kohs.
