User survey to be conducted

Wikipedia To Learn More About Its Volunteers - The Wikimedia Foundation will conduct a survey on Wikipedia users together with the joint United Nations-Maastricht University. It is said that there is currently little data about Wikipedia readers and editors, and the information will help understand how Wikipedia functions. The survey will be conducted over the next few months in various languages and the results are intended to be released at Wikimania this year.

    "Jimmy Wales backs a declaration to disrupt educational materials as open source software has disrupted proprietary software by introducing a process to help open-content material, while realising the difficulties that lie ahead."

    Agreed - I had to read it twice to unpick it - the first time I read it I presumed that there was a typo and it should be "Wales backs a declaration to distribute educational materials". I have changed it to hopefully make more sense. SFC9394 (talk) 21:15, 29 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]
