Three days. Two hundred talks. Only one Nimrod Kamer.
All of the other journalists there focused on the right to be forgotten (boring), but I asked the encyclopedia’s founding father, Jimmy Wales, and other Wiki enthusiasts about the lack of emojis in all pages except the “Emoji” page, and about the longer pages for people with shorter achievements in life (it’s not fair). Over the course of three days, I addressed the Syrian Civil War, Gaza, and Ebola pages, all of which are being abused daily.
Whenever there is injustice in the world, mankind will rise up and edit a Wikipedia page.
