Chris Bois

What would people arround me say ?

” Chris is a polymath ! “

” Chris is a slogger ! “

” Chris is a visionary ! “

In 1981 he described the Internet as it will be 15 years later.

In 1998 he began to imagine what will be WikiPedia and the MOOCS.

He wrote 1000 pages on the different components and the whole system :
– creating knowledge in labs
– publishing
– transform publications into WikiPedia articles
– use WikiPedia to learn
– use WikiPedia as an entry point to find research papers
– use research papers to create knowledge – loop to 1

He was an early contributor to WikiPedia.
He created pictures and diagrams for Commons.
He was disgusted by the knowledge destruction made by WikiPedia Black Knights – a metaphor.

He created some dozens of WordPress sites – for DiY, physical and mental health, research, etc.
In the 2019 annual report of Une fabrique de communs, the number of articles is evaluated to 1239.
From 2018 onward he was a whistleblower.
