The Critical Point of View conferences brought together critical researchers and Wikipedians to share and build insights into the complex and messy reality of this distributed knowledge machine: What are the new processes for determining the threshold of knowledge and how do they actually play out? What are the new relations that emerge between this knowledge reference and external institutions such as schools and governments? How is agency distributed within the Wikipedia platform?

With this event, the Amsterdam-based Institute of Network Cultures and the Bangalore-based Centre for Internet and Society launched a knowledge network around Wikipedia.

Concept: Geert Lovink and Sabine Niederer.
