Digithum May 2012 The term wikimediasphere is proposed to refer to the group of WikiProjects, communities of editors, guidelines and organisations structured around the Wikimedia movement to generate free knowledge that is available to everyone. A description is made of the wikimediasphere, presenting the main projects and their characteristics, and its community, technological, regulatory, social and institutional dimensions are outlined. The wikimediasphere is placed in context and reference is made to its blurred boundaries. An explanation is provided of the role of the communities of editors of each project and their autonomy with respect to each other and to the Wikimedia Foundation. The author concludes by offering a panoramic view of the wikimediasphere. 10 0
The Truth of Wikipedia Nathaniel Tkacz Wikipedia
Neutral point of view
Digithum May 2012 What does it mean to assert that Wikipedia has a relation to truth? That there is, despite regular claims to the contrary, an entire apparatus of truth in Wikipedia? In this article, I show that Wikipedia has in fact two distinct relations to truth: one which is well known and forms the basis of existing popular and scholarly commentaries, and another which refers to equally well-known aspects of Wikipedia, but has not been understood in terms of truth. I demonstrate Wikipedia’s dual relation to truth through a close analysis of the Neutral Point of View core content policy (and one of the project’s “Five Pillars”). I conclude by indicating what is at stake in the assertion that Wikipedia has a regime of truth and what bearing this has on existing commentaries. 7 0

Digithum May 2012 Wikipedia came into being in cyberspace. Its early years were marked by asynchronous work by users located all over the world who hardly ever related on a personal level outside the net. With time, some of the volunteers met at what were called wikimeetups, encounters initially aimed at tightening bonds which did not bring about any direct improvement to the project content. Face-to-face initiatives later took place that involved not just volunteers but also cultural entities. The most recent event and the one with the greatest impact was Wiki Loves Monuments 2011, a competition to photograph monuments in 18 European countries, including Spain. The high level of participation led to 160,000 photographs of monuments being taken, with Spain occupying the third place in terms of number of photographs. In this paper we explore the origins, implementation, development and results of Wiki Loves Monuments. The success of the 2011 edition and requests from other countries has led to organization of Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, which will be held at the global level. 3 0
Wikipedia's Role in Reputation Management: An Analysis of the Best and Worst Companies in the USA Marcia W. DiStaso

Reputation management
United States
Social media
Digithum May 2012 Being considered one of the best companies in the USA is a great honor, but this reputation does not exempt businesses from negativity in the collaboratively edited online encyclopedia Wikipedia. Content analysis of corporate Wikipedia articles for companies with the best and worst reputations in the USA revealed that negative content outweighed positive content irrespective of reputation. It was found that both the best and the worst companies had more negative than positive content in Wikipedia. This is an important issue because Wikipedia is not only one of the most popular websites in the world, but is also often the first place people look when seeking corporate information. Although there was more content on corporate social responsibility in the entries for the ten companies with the best reputations, this was still overshadowed by content referring to legal issues or scandals. Ultimately, public relations professionals need to regularly monitor and request updates to their corporate Wikipedia articles regardless of what kind of company they work for. 4 0

Digital language community
Digithum May 2011 There would seem to be a contradiction in the fact that Catalan should have a Wikipedia with a similar number of pages to that in Chinese. There are fewer than ten million Catalan speakers, and they were marginalised in their own land for a long time, but they have still been able to produce content on the internet that in some cases matches that of China, a world economic superpower with nearly one billion Chinese speakers. Though it should be noted that the situation is not the same in China as it is in those places where Catalan is spoken. This article offers an initial look at the social, educational, technological, economic and demographic factors linked to a language’s position in the ranking of number of Wikipedia articles. This analysis is based on one key concept, that of the digital language community, and the observation that Catalan’s position on the internet is not due to the activism of its speakers, but to a position that resembles that of any other medium-sized language community. Hi ha un aparent contrasentit en el fet que el català tinga a la Wikipedia un nombre d’articles similar al xinès. Una comunitat que no arriba a deu milions de catalanoparlants, llargament minoritzada al propi territori, pot arribar a tenir una capacitat de producció a internet que en alguns casos és assimilable a la de la Xina, que, amb prop de mil milions de parlants de xinès, és una superpotència econòmica mundial. Els més àvids matisaran que la situació no és la mateixa a la Xina que als territoris de llengua catalana. Aquest text vol fer una primera aproximació a quins són aquests factors socials, educatius, tecnològics, econòmics i demogràfics que estan relacionats amb la posició d’una llengua en el rànquing del nombre d’articles a la Wikipedia. D’aquesta anàlisi naix un concepte clau, el de la comunitat lingüística digital, i l’observació que la posició del català en el món d’internet no es deu a un pretès activisme dels seus parlants, sinó més aviat a una posició força semblant a la d’altres comunitats lingüístiques de demografia mitjana. 8 0
