The matter of understanding
if someone become aware of how important is free and horizontal knowledge and the possibilitys it has in a future and spreadable way of thingking, he will share what he thinks is necessary to know to be on the mood of its time. So, it will be necessary to sustain the importance of wikipedia with a powerful think tank mixed with philosophy and politics so is actual position would become politiced as future importance. It would be interesting to invite famous known philosophers and common people to talk about the way they think wikipedia interacts with reality, and also it would be a good way to make wikipedia appear in the news
