“We All Need Wikipedia.” Why This Foundation Is Giving Millions for Open Knowledge

“Knowledge is a slippery thing these days. Nearly half of Americans get their news from Facebook, a proprietary, opaque delivery system engineered to make money. We’re also seeing the rise of online sources deliberately seeking to mislead for political or commercial reasons.
