I just imagine a world in which every single person can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. I find it very interesting when I freely share some of my unique contents which led to my discovering of Creative Common and Wikipedia. Many thanks to the Wikimedia Foundation, Jimmy Wales, and the community members. I’m here to contribute my knowledge and skill to help facilitate the Wikimedia movement.
