Vice: China is recruiting 20,000 people to write its own Wikipedia. “Known as the ‘Chinese Encyclopedia,’ the country’s national encyclopedia will go online for the first time in 2018, and the government has employed tens of thousands of scholars from universities and research institutes who will contribute articles in more than 100 disciplines. The end result will be a knowledge base with more than 300,000 entries, each of which will be about 1,000 words long.”
