Digital Division of labour and informational magnetism: Mapping participation in Wikipedia.
In this article, the patterns of participation in Wikipedia are examined, along with the contribution of broadband accessibility to those patterns. The authors found that, despite Wikipedia's ubiquitous use, there are considerable regional disparities in participation, with involvement from the world's economically disadvantaged regions typically focusing on updating about world's cores then instead of their own local regions. The authors propose a non-linear link involving broadband access and engagement, with the availability available broadband internet being a crucial determinant of participation on Wikipedia. In particular, the power of broadband access to favourably effect participation keeps growing when a country approaches connectivity numbers above 450,000 broadband Internet connections. Overall, the results point to an informational magnetism that is cast by the world's economic cores, which makes it difficult to reconfigure networks and hierarchies of knowledge production.

Hypothesis and informed guesses:

  • Hypothesis 1: The number and types of articles that get translated across the various Wikipedia versions will differ significantly, with more translation taking place between language that are spoken in regions that have lots of broadband internet access. Taking an excerpt from the research, it can be said that "our regression analysis demonstrates that the accessibility of broadband is a clear determinant in the inclination of people to contribute on Wikipedia. “My educated assumption is that the availability of broadband will play a significant role in determining the patterns of translating between Wikipedia editions in different languages, with more translation taking place between languages in areas with high broadband connectivity.
