Movie Info

"Truth in Numbers? Everything, According to Wikipedia," a film by Scott Glosserman and Nic Hill showing the inner workings of the online information resource, will make its debut in a number of countries as part of worldwide celebrations of Wikipedia's 10th anniversary on January 15, 2011. Anniversary celebrations in Germany, India, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, Sweden and the UK will include screenings of the film for wikipedians and other fans of the website. The film illustrates a debate between traditional media and the proponents of crowd-sourced information over the reliability of the information found on Wikipedia, and the impact of having such a widely-used resource written and edited by non-experts. Using interviews with Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, Noam Chomsky, the late Howard Zinn, Jaron Lanier, Lawrence Lessig, Ray Kurzweil, and many others, "Truth in Numbers?" reveals surprisingly intense and emotional opinions on both sides, while also giving viewers an inside look at how Wikipedia works, who exactly is editing on the site, and the enormous international cultural phenomenon that it has become in the 10 years since its founding. After viewing this film, you will never look at Wikipedia the same way. The filmmakers engagingly explore the history and cultural implications of one of the most referenced sites on the Web. A whole range of opinion is expressed about the impact of Wikipedia on the archiving of learning, from interviews with founder Jimmy Wales to commentators suspicious of the site's supposed neutrality. Evenhandedly weaving multiple perspectives about the impact of Wikipedia, the film provokes a deeper conversation on how knowledge is formed and what future generations will learn about history and the world.-- (c) official site

The question is whether there's a way to make that freely-available knowledge less... sh***y.
