"Commercial business background"[edit]

"From my experience we have not taken in the full potential of [...] closer cooperation between language versions and contributors of different background: volunteers, people from institutions like Universities & GLAM, and also with commercial business background".

Dear Anders, what things with "commercial business background" are you talking about - people or institutions? What kind of cooperation do you propose with them? --NaBUru38 (talk) 16:25, 16 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for your question. I usually think of as an example publishing companies that want to create articles of the authors they give out books for. We have seen them write perfect articles with no POV or advertisment. Today auction houses put up excellent monographies of arts and object they sell and the designer, but they put these articles in a wiki for themself, I beleive it would be good if we could cooperate and they put thos up in Wikipedia (there is today no POV or advertisment in their monograhies.--Anders Wennersten (talk) 17:43, 16 April 2014 (UTC)Reply
