Wikipedia and it’s users
April 25th, 2007

This report says “more than a third of American adult internet users (36%) consult the citizen-generated online encyclopedia Wikipedia,according to a new nationwide survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project.And on a typical day in the winter of 2007,8% of online Americans consulted Wikipedia.There has been ongoing controversy about the reliability of articles on Wikipedia.Still, the Pew Internet Project survey shows that Wikipedia is far more popular among the well-educated than it is among those with lower levels of education.For instance,50% of those with at least a college degree consult the site,compared with 22% of those with a high school diploma.And 46% of those age 18 and older who are current full- or part-time students have used Wikipedia,compared with 36% of the overall internet population”.Also this age story says “Wikipedia volunteers are now working on a static version on CD,a preliminary version of which was released earlier this month.The goal is to extend Wikipedia to those with limited or no internet access.Success with the CD could ultimately lead to Wikipedia in book or other forms”.
