 How Wikipedia drives users to contribute content

Wikipedia is the very devil to those who believe that such open data leads to a mess of unreliable and uneven knowledge, and it's a gift to outright kooks and spammers. The fact is, more user contribution creates more value, which attracts more users, and more contribution, and so on. Wikipedia is a great example of a site that has succeeded in generating such an effect, and in this article you will learn elements of Wikipedia's architecture that you can use to grow your own site with user-generated content.
