I’m back! ;)

After one year of not being able (or let’s say allowed) to do what I want to do, I’m finally free and back again.

Sorry for not responding to all messages of people who asked me for help or even just added a blog comment.

I’m looking forward to do new great and awesome things! You really will enjoy it.

Enjoy this summer like I do! In case, just come over to talk about interesting new stuff, do photography sessions or just cruise (with me) through the german nature.

#wp10 – The crowd power – Wikipedia

10 years ago Jimmy Wales started Wikipedia with the basic idea to give free access to free information. Today it’s the biggest Encyclopedia with over 16.9 million articles in 276 languages and over 1.2 million community editors donating free content.

The german magazine “Die Zeit/The Time” writes in the latest magazine “Das größte Werk der Menschen/The biggest work done by people”.

And it’s true. It’s amazing what the knowledge of a large group of people working honorarily can do combined via a wiki. It’s just an unbelievable idea witch was born 10 years ago.

What are the key points of the unbelievable success?

  • Place to live: give a place, a home, a platform for all the knowledge to live
  • Community: give the possibility to get involved easily, give the control to the actors
  • Useful for everyone: publicly accessible, free for use by all

A great idea to release control to all users (editors, donors and supporters), as opposed to a singularity, to contribute and control to reach the global goal to create the biggest knowledge medium on this planet. Respect!
