Je wordt dus niet eerst doorgelicht en geballoteerd: iedereen mag en kan '''bewerken'''. Zie je een fout, corrigeer hem gerust. Alle kennis wordt zo meteen gedeeld, net wanneer reizigers het nodig hebben.
==Iteration and convergence==
Part of this low barrier to entry means that we can make articles through an '''iterative process''' -- repeatedly editing an article to make it better and better.
For example, the first person to write about a subject might just create a [[Project:stub articles|stub]], that is, just a sentence or two about the topic. The next person might add more, and the next person might add more to that. Someone may come in and combine a few sentences or paragraphs so they flow better. Someone else might come in and correct the spelling, and another person may come in and re-format the article to match our [[Project:manual of style|manual of style]].
Gradually the article '''converges''' on a really informative, high-quality piece of writing. Sure, there may be some setbacks along the way, but bit by bit Wiki articles get better and better.
