If you were to guess the meaning behind VideoWiki’s logo, you would have guessed that each dot represents an “individual VideoWiki article” and the dotted brain represents “the sum of all human knowledge”. Well, you guessed it right.

However, there is a hidden meaning on why we designed the dotted brain logo.

We would like to think that each dot represents an “individual person” and the dotted brain represents “the network of diverse people coming together to share knowledge for the world”

Human beings are divided by caste, color, race, religion, and politics. However, knowledge unites us all. The only time human beings have come together to do good and be united to accomplish a particular goal, is to build “the sum of all human knowledge”.

To build Wikipedia and VideoWiki, requires the co-operation of millions of human beings with unique and diverse backgrounds and VideoWiki’s logo is a reminder of this human spirit of cooperation. 🙌
