Actually! More than the internet if you take it to the extreme. Think
of all the knowledge in indigenous tribes for example.
http://www.slideshare.net/frimelle/increasing-access-to-free-and-open-knowledge-for-speakers-of-underserved-languages-on-wikipedia
has some interesting numbers on unequal access to knowledge on the
internet. (The author is my student.)
But more seriously: Wikimedia's vision doesn't say that all the
knowledge has to be with Wikimedia - just that it must be universally
and freely accessible.


Cheers
Lydia
