Inspired by an idea at ShouldExist.org, calling for a free or very cheap online college. Now some colleges do offer online degrees, but how about getting one from Wikipedia? It’d work like this: People add comprehension tests at the end of Wikipedia items. Each time you pass one, you’re get a score that’s stored in a database. Attain a designated number, and you’re a Wikipedia Master. Score more and get a Doctor of Wikipedia. Translating this into real-life help, like a job, might be difficult, but I’m seeing bragging rights, if not a TV or online quiz show. Sure, why not: Live Wikipedia knowledge contests, with prizes from sponsors! Or even honorary degrees from real colleges.
