    전략 기획/위키미디어 운동의 원리 (믿음)

    우리의 대범

    Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. That's our commitment. Over the past ten years, tens of thousands of volunteers have worked to make this vision a reality. Until this day, we have strived to reach this goal through open collaboration, using wiki software on the internet; we have made our contributions available to be downloaded for free by anyone with internet access. Our unique processes and community are what has made the Wikimedia projects uniquely successful.

    위키미디어 운동

    We are the Wikimedia movement. Our movement includes:

    • Thousands of individual contributors (editors, developers, donors, and other volunteers).
    • Like-minded organizations (such as Creative Commons, Electronic Frontier Foundation, and others that are focused on promoting and increasing access to free information for education and culture).
    • The Wikimedia chapters that exist in 28 countries today, and those that are in the process of forming.
    • The Wikimedia Foundation.

    In addition the vast number of people throughout the world who visit and read the projects today are part of our movement as well.

    The Wikimedia experiment has been far more successful than anyone anticipated it would be when it was launched less than a decade ago. It is the result of the many contributions, large and small, that hundreds of thousands of contributors in the movement have contributed. Our future successes hinge on the continued health, openness and expansion of our movement.

    Sketch of the Wikimedia movements beliefs and principles

    We are a diverse movement, but we share a common set of beliefs that guide our work and mission.

    지식은 자유로워야 한다.

    Participants in Wikimedia projects almost overwhelmingly share a particular core belief: that knowledge should be free. We believe that access to information empowers people to make rational decisions about their lives and we believe it is wrong to limit access to information in order to benefit any faction, party, group or individual.

    We are working together to collect and share the sum of human knowledge for use (and reuse) by every person in the world, free of charge. This requires thriving open formats and open standards on the web to allow for the creation of content that is not subject to restrictions on creation, use, and reuse as well as freely-licensed tools for participation and collaboration to enable the work of the editing community.

    다른 이들과의 공유

    The Wikimedia movement strives to reach every single human being and prioritizes investment to enable sharing by expanding our projects to areas where access may be limited due to language or technological barriers.

    정보는 공정해야 한다.

    In the content of our projects, we strive to provide the most reliable, unbiased, and complete information available on the internet. We acknowledge that no one is free from bias, be it Wikieditors or authors of traditional information sources, but we believe that mass collaboration among a diverse set of contributors and incremental consensus-building around controversial topics are powerful tools for achieving this goal; these are tools that are particularly useful in creating a nuanced understanding of complex topics, on which a single conclusion is difficult or impossible to arrive at.

    In Wikipedia, where we try to create a synthesis of all human knowledge, we aim for a neutral point of view. Where there are conflicting points of view we aim to give each appropriate weight. For other projects, such as WikiSource and WikiCommons we reproduce material from various points of view and aim to ensure all points of view are fairly and accurately represented.

    While we are opposed to those who would censor information nevertheless we strive to ensure the opinions and arguments of those who do not share our aims and ideals are presented in the information we provide and are given appropriate weight.

    열힌 다양성이 가치가 있다.

    The Wikimedia movement is global and seeks to become even more so. Wikimedia supports projects in over 270 languages covering virtually every country and currently has 28 chapters. While the Wikimedia Foundation is based in the United States, it works to support a global community and maintains an international board of trustees, staff, and volunteers. All are involved without discrimination based on their religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationalities, and other characteristics, and their differences are valued.

    위키미디어 공동체는 가장 중요한 자산이다.

    Wikimedia's success story is the result of the tireless work of its voluntary contributors. The number of hours contributed to the movement by paid staff of the Wikimedia Foundation is and will remain small relative to that provided by volunteers. The Wikimedia Foundation is part of the community, and it will focus its efforts in service of the community, making choices and investments that will increase the impact and effectiveness of the community in building the projects and achieving the mission.

    위키미디어 운동은 유연하고 실용적이다.

    In order to achieve our vision, the Wikimedia movement will innovate and try new solutions. The culture and technology that made Wikimedia effective in the past will not necessarily make Wikimedia effective in the future. This is because the Internet has rapidly changed in the past decade, accompanied by changes in beliefs and behavior. The entire movement must respond to changes in attitudes and technology for Wikimedia to stay relevant.

    지식은 공적인 상품으로 상업과는 독립되어야 한다.

    The knowledge presented on the Wikimedia projects has been created and discovered over millennia by people all over the world. It is a legacy we have inherited and which we hold in trust to cherish and preserve and pass on to future generations. As it has been passed to us freely, so we ensure it is made freely available for others to share and use in any way they choose provided they are willing to share with us.

    Wikimedia is committed to maintaining an experience on Wikimedia's projects that is free of commercialism. The infrastructure for the Wikimedia movement is provided by the Wikimedia Foundation, a non-profit organization that depends primarily on donations to operate. In order for the Wikimedia Foundation to stay free of influence in the way it operates, it adheres to a strict donation policy, reserves the right to refuse donations which would restrict its operations or steer the movement from its priorities and mission. The Foundation seeks contributions (in time and knowledge as well as money) from a large and diverse group of individuals (readers of and contributors to Wikimedia) around the world in order to align our funding with our community and prevent dependence on any single source of funding that might explicitly or implicitly exert undue influence on the projects.
