Wow.. I really loved this movie they did for the 10th Anniversary of Wikipedia. 
The free encyclopedia is one of the best things the Internet already has in store for us. You can learn about so many things from there and if the info is not enough, you can always read the books suggested in the articles. It’s a great thing that it exists.
They burnt the Library of Alexandria, but this one might truly be an everlasting source of information for human kind, like the Encyclopedia Galactica, in Asimov’s The Foundation series.
Ok, that may have sounded like too much, but I believe that it can reach that level. The power of the community is enormous.
Here’s the film, it’s really good and doesn’t take long.
