The final chapter summarizes the whole book and then discusses why academic circles distrust and dislike Wikipedia. It explains the distrust and dislike as a side effect of a new power-knowledge distribution that challenges the traditional way of producing and delivering expertise. The chapter also discusses open-collaboration communities as the avant-garde of a movement liberating society from a neoliberal regime, a movement that could be prelude to a new eve of totalitarian and ideological control.

Keywords:   knowledge production, scholars and Wikipedia, wikinomics, altruism online, ideological control online
