|Morozov I 30
Wikipedia/Kevin Kelly/Morozov: "The bureaucracy of Wikipedia is relatively small to be invisible" (1), the technology expert Kevin Kelly announces and confesses that "much of what I believed in human nature and the nature of knowledge was inverted by Wikipedia". Kelly writes that "everything I knew about the structure of information convinced me that knowledge wouldn't come spontaneously from data without a lot of energy and intelligence that is consciously designed to transform it" (2).
MorozovVsKelly: But there is no reason not to believe that nowadays. As it turns out, Wikipedia has a huge - not small - bureaucracy; its rules cover the most arcane ((s) obscure) topics.
