How?  I don't know what the quote means.  What in particular is the
problem with Wikipedia?  The tabs?  The lack of images?  The font?

Most people I talk to, who do not edit Wikipedia, are not doing it
because they are scared away by lack of user friendliness, they simply
have no interest in editing it.  There are a horde of reasons, out
there, but none of them are anything you can fix with Wikipedia's
mission and structure.
