/Imagespeople/JimmywalesWiki46w.jpg1. Feature Story / A three year journalistic journey with Jimmy Wales, the founder Wikipedia, by Pete Allman.
Wikipedia writes that Jimmy Donal "Jimbo" Wales, (born early August 1966 in Huntsville, Alabama -- is an American Internet entrepreneur known for his role in founding Wikipedia and other wiki-related projects, including the charitable Wikimedia Foundation and the for-profit company Wikia, Inc.--
MORE ABOUT Wiki & Jimmy Wales
• • "To begin with" says . . . Pete Allman, of tvinews, "I'm going to clarify the policy of our 51 year old company, Television International Magazine founded by Sam Donaldson and Al Preis -- in 1956, and since that year, nobody has faced the thought of losing their bio-people profile because they expressed an opinion about our publication."
• • For the last couple of years, to be safe side, we now follow the guidelines of Wikimedia's disclosure facts that contain language specifying that customers can't hold them accountable for service disruptions resulting from circumstances beyond their control.
• • In Wiki's case, the popular Internet profile include: "acts of God, acts of third parties, fires, floods, strikes or other labor-related disputes."
• • Their competitors have much gloomier outlook by stating that customers are on their own in the event of not only including: "acts of God and fire, but: explosion, vandalism, nuclear disaster, sun spots, solar flares, terrorism . . . Insurrections, riots, wars."
• • "We're just trying to be as clear as possible," Allman said.
• • As for Wikipedia, don't go crying to Wiki-editor when your Wiki access goes out amid an insurrection of your bio-message by a Wiki-editor. Try not to say anything unkind -- if you can
• • If you're displeased with the way a company treats you, you're free to air your feelings in public, right? Not necessarily if you receive high-speed Internet access from a staunch follower of Wikipedia.
• • Buried deep within Wikipedias' voluminous files of rewrites is language that says your Wikipedia access can be terminated for any behavior that Wikimedia believes might harm its "name or reputation," or even the reputation of its business partners.

/02. More / To be safe, though, like both Wikimedia's and TVInew's disclosure facts, Profile4, the new start-up bio-message Internet company, sent notices to thousands of new customers revising their service contracts with VATS, a video, audio, text and WiFi187 media distribution facility.
••• It follows an incident last month in which Wikimedia blocked a free speech-rights study group from uploading text messages to the company's network, deeming the messages too promotional, as more fully stated in the above "Quote Message".
••• Profile4 and Wikimedia say they've never enforced the can't-criticize-us contract terms, which have been in place for years.
••• But the provisions highlight yet again the danger to free expression when a relative handful of private companies serve as gatekeepers to information networks.
••• How free is free speech in the digital era?
••• Whether it's a rock star ranting against President Bush, within the Bush Wiki Profile web page, or a disgruntled user griping about shoddy service.
••• "Not being able to speak your mind about something is contrary to public policy," said Frank Tuerkheimer, a law professor at the University of Wisconsin who focuses on Internet-related issues.
••• But it's apparently not illegal. The 1st Amendment, Tuerkheimer pointed out, doesn't apply to Wiki's private entities, All Wiki's text is licensed under the GNU free documentation licensed (GFDL).
••• All text on Wikipedia is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). Over 100 sites using Wikipedia for content have been identified, and categorized by their degree of compliance, at Wikipedia: GFDL Compliance. Wikipedia:Mirrors and forks has more information, including what to do if someone is violating the GFDL license.
••• Free content, or free information, is any kind of functional work, artwork, or other creative content having no significant legal restriction relative to people's freedom to use, redistribute, and produce modified versions of and works derived from the content.
••• Free content encompasses all works in the public domain and also those copyrighted works whose licenses honor and uphold the freedoms mentioned above. Because the law by default grants copyright holders monopolistic control over their creations, copyrighted content must be explicitly declared free, usually by the referencing or inclusion of licensing statements from within the work.
••• (Work in the public domain cannot be licensed because, by definition, its copyright has expired or has been relinquished. However, such a work is still considered free content, because it may be used for any purpose whatsoever &emdash; except, naturally, being re-copyrighted.). -- MORE STORY -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_content
••• You have to wade deep into Wikimedia's user's contract to find the one-line disclaimer in which the company reserves the right to slam the door on any Internet customer who might bruise the company's feelings.
••• Along with specifying behavior that is "self-promtional, defamatory, fraudulent, obscene or deceptive," the contract says service may be suspended or terminated for any behavior that "tends to damage the name or reputation of Profile4, Yes90 -- [Profile4's online partner] or their respective parents, affiliates and subsidiaries."
••• In Wikimedia's case, you have to make it all the way through the company's several web-pages of explaination, to weed out the out the "acceptable use of its policy."
••• This is where customers are informed that, among other things, they aren't allowed to post material online that's "obscene, indecent, pornographic, sadistic, cruel or racist in content, or of a sexually explicit or graphic nature; or which espouses, promotes or incites bigotry, hatred or racism."
••• It's also where the company says customers are similarly crossing the line if they "damage the name or reputation of Wikimedia, its parent, affiliates and subsidiaries, or any third parties."
••• A Profiles4 spokesman, said the language was there "to stop people from setting up websites that look like their's" or engaging in other ploys frequently used by scammers to con people into revealing personal info, including Social Security and credit card numbers.
••• Pete Allman said he understood that some people might view the language as a right to censor customers' opinions, particularly when such opinions might trample on TVInews's good name.
••• "But whether or not it's interpreted that way is irrelevant," he said, "because we've never used it that way. Actions speak louder than words."
••• That wasn't a very persuasive argument for Kurt Opsahl, senior attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco advocacy group focusing on digital-rights issues. "If they're not going to use it, then why have it?"
••• Profile4, stresses that the company had no plans to censor customers. "We respect our customers' right to express themselves as they see fit."
 Part 03 / • So why have the language in customers' contracts?
••• "The policy is what it is," attorney Scott S replied. "This is common brand language designed to protect the brand."
••• Actually, not all broadband providers claim such a right. For example, a spokeswoman for Time Warner Cable said the company had no policy addressing termination of customers' accounts just because they might say mean things.
••• Profile4's user contract language will be continually revised in the future -- to reflect a more free-speech-friendly mind-set.
"Wiki" is the Hawaiian word for quick, and it refers to a website that can be updated easily by anyone from any Web browser. The first wiki armature was developed in 1995, and Wikipedia -- the brainchild of one Jimmy Wales -- was founded in 2001. Under Wales' brilliant conception, anyone can go into Wikipedia (wikipedia.org) and create a new article or edit an old one: It is entirely accessible and entirely alterable.
• • This is anarchy, of course, and completely antithetical to the encyclopedic tradition, which has emphasized a kind of solemn definitiveness and authority. Britannica and Encarta, for instance, not only employ experts to write their articles but subject everything they publish to a rigorous review process. At Wikipedia, you (or any old maniac) can march right onto the "nuclear fusion" page and add your thoughts.
• •
But as Wikipedia says about itself, the point is not that it's hard to make mistakes but that it's easy to correct them. Because thousands of people -- ordinary, unpaid, outside participants -- monitor and edit Wikipedia, errors and vandalism are often corrected in seconds. One feature of the site is a list of recently updated pages, so that one can keep track of changes. One can even revert to a previous version of an article if mistaken or malevolent parties have messed it up.
• •
The result is not perfect. In one brief instance, a character from "Star Wars" was labeled Benedict XVI. But such is the exception, not the rule, and usually quickly rectified. Overall, the encyclopedia gets ever larger and ever more accurate. The English version has grown to more than half a million entries, and in checking the "recent changes" section I once found a dozen or more revisions every minute. The site also provides contexts in which changes can be proposed and discussed among writers.
• •
So is it to be trusted? Does it have the credibility of Britannica? Well, I have monitored over a decent period a number of entries on matters about which I know something and have found them almost invariably accurate. And I have watched some of them grow, becoming ever more elaborate and interlinked.
• •
In fact, open architecture is in some sense the only possible way to do what an encyclopedia purports to do: represent the state of human knowledge in real time. Such a project is by its nature so huge that it requires what Wikipedia has: thousands of experts, editors, checkers and so on with expertise in different fields working over a period of years. Also, Wikipedia, unlike the World Book, for example, or even Encarta, is updated continuously. When we use the term "public property," we usually mean state property, but Wikipedia compromises the concept of ownership without dispossessing anyone: It is truly public property.
• •
What is perhaps most fascinating about Wikipedia is its demonstration in practical anarchy. It is an ever-shifting, voluntary, collaborative enterprise. If it is in the long run successful, it would show that people can make amazing things together without being commanded, constrained, taxed, bribed or punished.
• •
There are people who want to deface or even destroy Wikipedia. The right-wing blogger Ace of Spades -- out of mischief and because he heard Wikipedia's operators were liberals -- recently called on its readers to "punk" the site to put up as much misinformation and nonsense as possible. Other blogs gleefully expose errors, even if those defects persist only for a few minutes.
• •
If the vandals are successful, they'll more or less confirm the common wisdom that people are too evil and miserable to be allowed to govern themselves.

But if Wikipedia grows into the greatest reference work ever made, it will suggest that great things are possible when you merely let people go and see what happens.

May 4, 2005 / ASK Jimmy Wales anything and Crispin Sartwell of Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsulvania says Wikipedia is the best.
Encyclopedias -- whether paper (Britannica, for example) or software (Encarta) -- are intended to be representations of the scope of human knowledge at the moment of their publication. This idea, of course, has a long history. But the most interesting thing about it may be its future, as represented by the magnificent, nonprofit Wikipedia. MORE STORY, dated May 4, 2005.
