Guerilla Skeptics on Wikipedia

24/4/19

Founded in 2010 by Susan Gerbic of Monterey Skeptics in California, GSoW aims to Improve skeptical content of Wikipedia by ensuring articles are honest, well referenced and complete. Susan has trained and led a group of activists to update Wiki pages on diverse pages from Edinburgh Skeptics to Sylvia Browne. She said that "When people are looking for information, we want to make sure they are getting great information".

So far there are 152 editors around the world, updating pages in several different languages and to date they have added or updated 966 pages. Those pages have been viewed 42,640,928 times as of last week.

If you want to learn more or even want to be a part of GSoW yourself, come along to The Cabaret Voltaire on Blair St tonight at 7:30 where Susan will tell you more about the project and how you can help.
