The Decline of Wikipedia


The Compulsive Explainer

MIT Technology Review

I have to congratulate the Technology Review for providing direct Internet access to this article.

But like most technology-obsessed movements – they do not understand the human culture they are part of – which they have largely shaped themselves.

The people who contribute to Wikipedia are largely of my age group – the middle of the 20th Century. By contrast, all the new users are of the early 21st Century. And there is a huge difference.

The young only want to get (or consume) whatever they can – they only want to be entertained – and are not interested in making any contributions themselves.

Correct me if I am wrong.
