There are many good reasons to be involved in Wikipedia:

  • It's fun.
  • It's easy.
  • It's educational.
  • It's social.
  • You can correct other people on the spot without asking their permission!
  • It's exciting. Wikipedia has created literally thousands of articles in the mere months since its inception--over 2,000 per month, in fact.
  • It's interesting to share your knowledge with other people, particularly knowing that others can instantly edit or react to what you've written.
