Week 12 Wikipedia-centric presentation on:
-Clay Shirky's Personal Motivation Meets Collaborative Production
-Andrew Keen's Cult of the Amateur
This presentation walks through Shirky's points, explaining how Wikipedia is held as the ideal model of collaborative production in today's Web 2.0 world. However, it also goes beyond the readings in introducing the WikiScanner and all it has uncovered. This implies that the real issue may not be what Keen calls the "endless digital forest of mediocrity", but the fact that "Wikipedia entries are being used as a medium for corporate propaganda".
