World of Wikipedia by Jon Robson

I have worked at the Wikimedia Foundation now for roughly 2 years. During this time I have met wonderful people who are amongst many things enthusiastic, clever, passionate, altruistic and creative. I've also hit lots of hurdles and frustrations at trying to make the sum of all knowledge available to every single human. In my opinion (not my employers) there are many problems that we need to overcome to help make our content accessible to every single human. For instance a talk page, watchlist or recent changes might be perfect for an editor but how do we make those accessible and inviting to a new user?

This map aims to highlights the journey of the first time reader. It highlights the technical problems I see; the social problems amongst our communities. The obstacles our readers must overcome to access and edit our knowledge. If you start in the bottom left corner - The Land of the Reader you may find some familiar paths to the sum of all human knowledge.

Yet it's not all doom and gloom. Wikipedia has a rich history and there is lots to laugh, smile and be proud of.

I hope you enjoy exploring the map as much as I had fun drawing it. Hopefully you'll learn something new in the process! Jdlrobson (talk) 21:10, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
