00:00:00.000,00:00:05.000 Wikipedia is non-profit, but it's the #5 website in the world. All of the articles on Wikipedia are written by volunteers.

00:00:06.000,00:00:11.500 Me ynskjer å introdusera deg til nokre få av dei...

00:00:12.000,00:00:13.000 Eg er frå Nepal

00:00:13.100,00:00:14.000 Eg er frå Irak

00:00:14.100,00:00:16.000 Eg kjem frå India

00:00:16.001,00:00:17.000 Eg er frå Byram i New Jersey

00:00:17.100,00:00:18.000 Eg bur i Birmingham i England

00:00:18.100,00:00:22.050 Chicago i Illinois -- La Paz i Bolivia -- Nairobi i Kenya

00:00:22.051,00:00:24.000 Kuala Lumpur i Malaysia -- Milan i Italia -- Sør-Afrika

00:00:24.100,00:00:26.100 Polen -- Japan -- Armenia

00:00:26.200,00:00:28.000 Brasil -- Russland -- Botswana

00:00:28.001,00:00:30.500 Israel -- Usbekistan -- Hongkong

00:00:30.501,00:00:31.000 Istanbul -- Mexico

00:00:31.001,00:00:32.000 Chattanooga i Tennessee

00:00:33.000,00:00:38.000 I fyrstninga då eg vart med på Wikipedia i 2008, oppretta eg mange artiklar

00:00:38.100,00:00:44.000 Éin av dei, eg trur det var om ei dame som heitte Mariam Nour.

00:00:44.100,00:00:48.000 Me hadde ikkje ein artikkel om henne, so -- og det var den fyrste artikkelen min.

00:00:48.100,00:00:52.500 So eg gløymde dette! Kan henda to eller tre år seinare,

00:00:52.600,00:00:57.000 Kom eg over artikkelen. Eg vart sjokkert.

00:00:57.100,00:01:02.000 Meir enn 100 000 menneske hadde lese han.

00:01:02.100,00:01:08.000 Dei brukte han, slik at dei fekk informasjonen sin frå han. Dei kom over denne artikkelen,

00:01:08.100,00:01:15.000 so du deg kjenner som om du påverka meir enn 100 000 menneske.

00:01:15.500,00:01:19.000 I was just so terrified when I pushed the 'edit' button for the first time.

00:01:19.100,00:01:24.000 I thought, “Oh my god, I’m going to ruin everything! That can’t work! I can’t do it!”

00:01:24.100,00:01:29.000 Wikipedia is an 'open source' -- where everyone can throw in his or her idea

00:01:29.100,00:01:34.000 and then somebody else comes in and polishes on that idea to make it superb.

00:01:34.100,00:01:40.500 There are thousands of people working every day, every hour, every minute on Wikipedia to improve it.

00:01:40.501,00:01:44.000 A lot of it is the volunteerism. This is a unique way to volunteer.

00:01:44.100,00:01:49.000 It brings together both professionals and amateurs who have a love for a particular topic.

00:01:49.100,00:01:54.000 The people who had different opinions in the beginning start to collaborate.

00:01:54.001,00:01:58.500 A lot of what you would assume a large Internet corporation would handle

00:01:58.501,00:02:01.000 is handled by volunteers like me.

00:02:01.100,00:02:05.000 You just can’t say, “Okay, I’m right, you’re wrong, this is my version of the article!”

00:02:05.100,00:02:07.000 If there’s an issue of bias,

00:02:07.100,00:02:11.000 then somebody has probably flagged it and if not, now I can flag it too.

00:02:11.000,00:02:13.000 You’ve got hundreds and thousands of people seeing that

00:02:13.001,00:02:15.000 and correcting it.

00:02:15.001,00:02:16.400 And then I push the button and

00:02:16.401,00:02:19.600 Boom - The journey started and it was great.

00:02:19.601,00:02:21.000 First I started with 'Probability'.

00:02:21.001,00:02:24.000 The first article I started is 'Probability'.

00:02:24.001,00:02:26.000 One of my main articles I wrote on Wikipedia was

00:02:26.001,00:02:27.400 the article on stab wounds.

00:02:27.401,00:02:29.000 I write about fly fishing,

00:02:29.001,00:02:32.000 Montana history, National Park history, Yellowstone.

00:02:32.001,00:02:36.100 Underutilized crops. Chess players. Biodiversity. 

00:02:36.101,00:02:39.100 Military history topics. Armenian history. Roman history.

00:02:39.101,00:02:42.100 Judges. Communication. Biographies. Football.

00:02:42.101,00:02:45.901 Ireland. Pennsylvania. Mostly photography.

00:02:45.901,00:02:47.600 Pink Floyd. Baking, because I love to bake.

00:02:47.601,00:02:50.200 Nuclear weapons and radioactivity,

00:02:50.201,00:02:52.000 and whitewater kayaking.

00:02:52,201,00:02:56.000 There’s all this information that’s out there that’s kind of scattered

00:02:56.001,00:02:59.000 and we’re putting it together in one place.

00:02:59.100,00:03:03.000 We are offering free knowledge for everyone,

00:03:03.101,00:03:07.000 in their own language so they can use it.

00:03:07.501,00:03:11.000 Everyone is benefited by this whether they are rich or poor.

00:03:11.001,00:03:16.000 For-profit companies have different motivations and different requirements.  

00:03:16.500,00:03:22.000 From the Wikimedia Foundation, I don’t take a salary and I also don’t even take expenses.

00:03:22.001,00:03:25.500 I think it’s very important that I’m able to say quite clearly,

00:03:25.501,00:03:30.500 Look, when I’m asking you for money, I’m not asking you for money for myself --

00:03:30.501,00:03:36.000 I’m asking you for money for the Foundation which is the team who supports this amazing community that I’m a part of.

00:03:36.501,00:03:41.400 I think Wikipedia gave me this chance to really make a huge difference in the world.

00:03:41.401,00:03:48.000 It’s like an investment for your future, for your children’s future.

00:03:53.401,00:03:57.000 Thank You
