Présentation de l'éditeur

With an emphasis on peer–produced content and collaboration, Wikipedia exemplifies a departure from traditional management and organizational models. This iconic "project" has been variously characterized as a hive mind and an information revolution, attracting millions of new users even as it has been denigrated as anarchic and plagued by misinformation. Have Wikipedia's structure and inner workings promoted its astonishing growth and enduring public relevance?

In Common Knowledge?, Dariusz Jemielniak draws on his academic expertise and years of active participation within the Wikipedia community to take readers inside the site, illuminating how it functions and deconstructing its distinctive organization. Against a backdrop of misconceptions about its governance, authenticity, and accessibility, Jemielniak delivers the first ethnography of Wikipedia, revealing that it is not entirely at the mercy of the public: instead, it balances open access and power with a unique bureaucracy that takes a page from traditional organizational forms. Along the way, Jemielniak incorporates fascinating cases that highlight the tug of war among the participants as they forge ahead in this pioneering environment.

HASH(0x8bd78f90) étoiles sur 5 Truth isn't pretty 18 juillet 2014
Par Michal - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
As a long time Wikipedia contributor who knows the high and the lows of Wikipedia it was a very bittersweet read for me. I'm not going to spoil your read but Wikipedia is a weird place, it takes a special person to survive this jungle that's a mix of hard line bureaucracy and soft-as-you-go democracy that's more about lobbying than anything else. When you get into it, it's like entering another world occupied by Humpty Dumpties (When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less) who try to outdo each other while you realize you become one of them.

Dariusz describes an imperfect world full of imperfect people who try to create a perfect depository of all knowledge and despite the apparent impossibility almost manage it to a large degree.

Like his famous countryman, Bronisław Malinowski (shame on you if you don't know who it is, just look it up on Wikipedia), Jemielniak has totally emerged himself in the culture he is describing and his insider views, real life examples and comments really make this book.

It is a little too academic and dry at places when he tries too much to distance himself from his real love to the Wiki ideas but it wasn't enough to make me put it down with a shrug.

Oh well, enough of that crap, I'm back to editing Wiki (again).

HASH(0x8bef85dc) étoiles sur 5 Analysis of Wikipedia – the rise of the non-expert, work that matters, and hints of dystopia 2 juin 2015
Par Afia - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is Dariusz Jemielniak’s account of the world's largest open source project and its unique hacker-like culture. It’s also a story of interest to anthropologists.

This story and analysis made the idea of a virtual, open-collaboration community fascinating to me. I now appreciate that it will influence the future of work for all of us.

A casual observer may be satisfied in knowing the simple purpose of Wikipedia – to build an encyclopedia. But Jemielniak shows how the Wikipedia process works exceptionally well in terms of quality and scale even while under continual threat of parts of itself forking off into other organizations. Its theoretical target is to get to the point where all humans can freely share in humanity’s entire collective body of all knowledge in every language.

Prior to our current post-industrial turn, hired experts from academia built encyclopedias. Now over 25 million named editors through an open-collaboration-organization movement are building Wikipedia at breakneck speed. And they’re doing it without financial remuneration!

To imagine the Wikipedia phenomenon as merely due to technology is to miss what is of special interest to anthropologists. The way people work together in the Wikipedian subculture is with complete disregard for academic and experiential credentials existent outside the subculture. Organizations willing to change in order to remain competitive might want to adopt a peer-production and open-collaboration culture. They can look at the Wikipedia experience for guidance.

Jemielniak says this organization model “resembles a chaotic bazaar with its independent agents rather than a cathedral.” He explains the processes, policies, hierarchies, and attitudes of this chaotic bazaar. Wikipedians are manic about protecting the open source movement and individual privacy. Because one trusts the methods, nobody needs a resume or the vetting of credentials. It’s considered good that outside credentials don’t matter, since this way legitimizes and encourages a vast army of non-expert contributors.

Jemielniak discusses what this means for the future of our society. Scarce products (access to vast high-quality knowledge) are being produced at great scale and made freely available due to the inputs of “massive unpaid labor.” This is going to have, is having, huge impacts on many types of jobs. Further, human history is not characterized by benign episodes following a great challenge to the status quo. We may get “increased surveillance, corporate control, and abuse through unpaid labor.”

This book attracted me to the crazy Wikipedia culture. My admiration for Wikipedia Editors grew.

A thorough academic assessment of Wikipedia structure and politics written from the inside by a longtime insider. Could be considered boring unless you yourself are already interested in the subject.
