Learning through massively co-authored biographies: Making sense of steve jobs on wikipedia through delegated voice is a 2013 conference paper written in English by Rughinis C., Matei S. and published in Proceedings - 19th International Conference on Control Systems and Computer Science, CSCS 2013.

[edit] Abstract

This paper discusses opportunities for learning about biographies through Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopaedia. We examine argumentation and interpretation practices in Steve Jobs's entry and its associated Talk pages, focusing on editors' debates on whether Jobs was an 'inventor'. We highlight argumentation from delegated voice as a core element of Wikipedian knowledge building; contributors' variable skills in engaging this NPOV mandated requirement account for their success or failure in promoting changes in page content and structure. Editors' concerns about topic relevance and page structure are particularly vulnerable to counter-argumentation from delegated voice.
