UPenn and Wikipedia and Scott Glosserman
After co-writing, producing and directing the clever horror movie Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, Scott Glosserman (C'99, Friars) has completed his next project (as a producer and co-director) of a different type of horror — me, you, and thousands of other users taking over responsibilities for Britannica and The World Book.

In his documentary Truth in Numbers?, Scott takes us on the journey about the phenomenon that Wikipedia has become.

Check out his trailer after the jump and learn more about tonight's (Thursday, 2/17) Los Angeles screening and Q&A after the jump!




Per Scott,
"The question of whether you and I should be charged with canonizing the sum of human knowledge or whether that should be left to the scholars/experts really intrigues me. I think it’s safe to say that we’re among a populist revival era right now and nowhere is that more acutely reflected than on Wikipedia. If knowledge is power and history really is written by the winners, then Wikipedia, already the second most widely read publication in human history, clearly demonstrates this power shift towards "The People". The documentary tries to explore implications of that, among other things."
If you live in LA, Scott's screening is tonight followed by a QandA hosted by Andrew Lih (The Wikipedia Revolution) to follow:

  • Time: Thursday, Feb. 17, 7:30 pm-10:30 pm (Book/DVD signing at 6 pm
  • Location: Aero Theatre: 1328 Montana Avenue at 14th Street, Santa Monica, CA
