Key Insight
  1. The Western encyclopedia model is not serving the evolving needs of people who want to learn.
  2. Knowledge sharing has become highly social across the globe.
  3. Much of the world's knowledge is yet to be documented on our sites and it requires new ways to integrate and verify sources.
  4. The discovery and sharing of trusted information have historically continued to evolve.
  5. Trends in misinformation are increasing and may challenge the ability for Wikimedians to find trustworthy sources of knowledge.
  6. Mobile will continue to grow. Products will evolve and use new technologies such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality. These will change how we create, present, and distribute knowledge.
  7. As the world population undergoes major shifts, the Wikimedia movement has an opportunity to help improve the knowledge available in more places and to more people.
  8. Readers in seven of our most active countries have little understanding of how Wikipedia works, is structured, is funded, and how content is created.

Line Week # Key insight Summary Statement Overall Keyword
1 1 A We shall not adjust to death but find strategies where our quality work seems to be an attractive alternative. concern quality
2 1 A Change media behaviour can be natched with extended ways of access (made by others than Wikipedia) but the foundation of facts (=Wikipedia) is a must. neutral facts
3 1 A We have a working infrastructure which we should value and protect, at the same time we must be open for new solutions that can make us more adjusted to, e.g. Snapchat. neutral adjustment
4 1 A Wikipedia's task is to write an encyclopedia. Is that format unmodern and a dying dinosaur, that's fine, let Wikipedia sleep in dignity as an active encyclopedia and don't try to be something else. Better that Wikimedia starts a new project that gathers questions and answers from various Wikimedia projects. concern encyclopedia
5 1 A It will take a long until knowledge becomes dusty. The information society means knowledge gets more meaning for more people. It would be of interest to make a survey about level of education, income, living conditions among people looking for information on Wikipedia. neutral survey
6 1 A Search engines will become more developed towards that bots generate answers from various databases and sources instantly when the query is submitted. And Wikimedia is absolutely the right instance to match that development. neutral queries
7 1 A If WMF wants to supply easily digested info in order to maximise the number of accesses, Wikipedia isn't the right place. It is not our task on Wikipedia to follow every change in trends. concern trends
8 1 A Wikipedia shall not be anything else than an encyclopedia. concern encyclopedia
9 1 A I don't see why Wikipedia shall package the knowledge in a new way, but Wikimedia Foundation can do it. neutral package knowledge
10 1 A Information can be presented in different ways, but to me it is more important to put effortt in correct and well balanced information than focusing making it easily accessible. concern correct and well balanced
11 1 A Wikipedia should be an encyclopedia. That doesn't mean that the Wikimedia movement can't be a platform for information sharing, but the naswer to that may not be Wikipedia. concern encyclopedia
12 1 A It is the information – the knowledge sharing – that is important, not the format and packaging. In that sense Wikimedia is more important than the project Wikipedia. neutral knowledge sharing
13 1 A There is a need for structured information, placing topics in a context, explaining, giving backgrounds and perspectives. In this area Wikipedia has a better future. neutral context
14 1 A Wikipedia is a place where different opinions and views meet and create a common text. This is one of Wikipedia's strengths, that will continue to make it relevant. concern opinions meet
15 1 A The big encyclopedias were born from the Age of Enlightenment 300 years ago. An idea that has survived big changes in the society for that period of time with revolutions and world wars will continue to survive in the information era. concern Age of Enlightenment
16 1 A There is no reason to leave the western model of encyclopedia. concern encyclopedia
17 1 A We should not depreciate or despise other kind of information sharing, spreading or development just because it doesn't look like Wikipedia. neutral sharing
18 1 A We shall continue to be proud of that we are working with an encyclopedia and it will continue to have a great value, but we shall be open for other ways to make it accessible. neutral encyclopedia
19 1 A The challenge for Wikimedia Foundation is to create a Wikimedia project, a sister project, which could attract more than just a ppm of the population to share and add knowledge and to have a better represenation of these ppm. supportive sister project
20 1 A There will always be an audience searching for easily accessible, with good overview and of good quality. It is those Wikipedia should strive to meet. Others needs may be supported by other wiki projects. concern good quality
21 2 C The need of sources can't be changed, but we might open up for "own reserach", but that will require review by "experts", as in the academic world. This should be done beside the ordinary Wikipedia articles. supportive review
22 2 C There is a need to define what "knowledge" is in this case. concern knowledge
23 2 C I can hardly agree with the "key insights". I believe that the foundations to understand, interpretate and describe our world - also what's not yet descibed in reliable written historical sources - is supported by science, democracy and transparency, i.e. the values that are the keys of the Wiki projects. concern science
24 2 C I think it is important that we - in regards of verification - stand for a view of knowledge based on the knowledge and education tradition that has been built up in the "western world" for centuries. concern verification
25 2 C It's important to document the whole world, but not without the requirement of sources. neutral sources
26 3 F Let us develop our strengths, our global community to deliver knowledge (=neutal and correct information). See the technical development as an opportunity and let others spread our information when our interfaces aren't not enough. Don't compete with Google and Facebook – collaborate with them. neutral collaborate
27 3 E It is in some way built into the civilised society that we protect facts, objectivity and balance by support of research, criticism of sources and an active debate in the society. This is supported by technology and globalisation. concern protection
28 3 E A clearer definition of Wikipedia's role in relation to other actors is needed. We should not rely on unverified information from news. neutral definition
