Thanks to ZBdigitaal I noted this presentation from World Bank staff, on the use of Wikipedia as a knowledge management system. Apart from the knowledge management side of the use of the Wikipedia for World Bank reports, it is a good initiative to expose the essence of kilometers of reports from the World Bank bureaucracy to a larger public. I wish I could encourage our researchers to make use of the Wikipedia more often. With two major objectives; (1) to expose their ideas and findings to a larger public than academic peers only. (2) For our scientists to be prepared to participate in the public discussions on their theme of research with public stakeholders. Interesting move of the World Bank
