About Negapedia

Truth is stranger than fiction. (Mark Twain)

Our lives are made of good and bad things, and this reflects on everything humanity does. This duality is also present in Wikipedia, which is the product of big social interactions: people from all around the world help to shape the fundamental encyclopaedia of our times.
 
Like every social interaction, the creation of articles in Wikipedia is subject to a balancing between positive and negative forces, where people add or delete information in reaction to different impulses. In fact, information is not just made of facts, but also of needs, contrapositions, biases, interests. These aspects trigger epic battles in many parts of Wikipedia, battles that evolve through time and that mirror our society, with its multitude of opinions and consequent clashes.
 
Negapedia exposes these epic battles, showing the negative side of every page (a negaview): the underlying layer of social turbolence, of good and evil, that continuously shapes the information we see.
