Knowledge Geography

As mentioned previously, Wikipedia is one of the last bastions of the original spirit of the internet.

That’s generally a good thing, but not entirely. The majority of its contributors seem to be cis white men and only a small percentage of them do the most writing.


Now The Atlantic has produced a data set and corresponding maps of the contributors.

The data shows insights in religion, class, political affiliation, population and accessibility to the internet. That last one isn’t too surprising.
