Review for Wikimedia Foundation Inc, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Wikimedia Foundation is an amazing organization that has really been a pioneer in the free information movement. Through their online encyclopedia in hundreds of languages, their network of chapters around the world, and their partnerships with like-minded organizations, they have been and continue to be the source for information online.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how integrated into everyday life it is. It's hard to walk into an American library and not see Wikipedia being consulted; when Wikipedia goes down, it's noteworthy enough for the BBC and CNN.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people. "Wikimedians" are a diverse group of dedicated people who are trying to make the world a better place -- and succeeding.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazingly motivated and devoted to what they were doing.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

spread free knowledge even further, to those places where an internet connection and computers are hard to come by.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & coordinated translations, wrote an internal newsletter, performed general website maintenence, and helped plan conferences.
