We routinely create new Wikipedia pages to publish some of our content. As of 2020, Wikipedia remains the best media for publications of free content, as it reaches the widest possible audiences.
Wikipedia is the #1 content site in the world—a true breakaway leader. Moreover, despite occasional declarations to the contrary, studies confirm that Wikipedia is used universally in the educational and media fields, thus influencing other content endlessly. Journalists, writers, and students of all levels routinely start research on every topic by consulting Wikipedia. Then, if necessary, they proceed to check the sources cited on the Wikipedia page, expanding Wikipedia’s impact even more.
All major search engines incorporate Wikipedia content in their algorithms. The overwhelming majority of topic searches in Google, Bing, Yahoo, or AOL not only feature a Wikipedia page as the first entry, but also display an additional section placed to the right of the search results. These sections are entirely based on the corresponding Wikipedia articles, using their introductions, images, and structure.
The material published on Wikipedia is freely available to everyone, as it’s provided under free or “copyleft” (as opposed to copyright) licenses. In fact, Wikipedia doesn’t own its content. If, at some point in the future, the Wikimedia Foundation becomes insolvent, falls into “enemy hands,” or collapses under any other doomsday scenario, anyone could copy all its content, republish it (with a mere acknowledgement that it originally came from Wikipedia), and continue its improvement from a new venue. Wikipedia’s content is also the best candidate to survive any planetary-scale disaster, as it is copied and mirrored the most; there are even organizations that etch its content on unperishable sheets and store them safely.
Wikipedia has an overwhelming reach and its content is virtually guaranteed to remain available to humanity. Thus, as of 2020, Wikipedia is the best media for some of Wenard’s content contributions.
