Fun because this connects directly to last week’s Wikimania 2012 in Washington, DC where I met a wikipedian philosophy doctorate from Estonia named Raul Veede.
Synchronicity and random serendipity are the most reliable indicators I follow in order to avoid the contrived pressures of marketing, crowd control, greed and aggression. Long live the randomness of the internet and the global volunteer efforts of wiki writers everywhere.
P.S. If you’ve ever used Wikipedia, consider making a donation. Wikipedians are volunteers. Donations support the infrastructure and service costs.
