Areas of knowledge are mostly in the humanities. I've learned that education is useless compared to real-life experience. Nevertheless, I have a degree from UofT (St.Mike's), and another one from UofT (OISE), and have also studied at Rye, OCAD, & RCM.
I got involved with Wikipedia because I learn a whole lot when I write my thoughts out clearly.
Wikipedia can never be an actual encyclopedia, because its democratic nature does not allow it to be authoritative. This is debated, however.
I see Wikipedia as essentially an experiment in the possibilities of democracy, though some disagree. If debates can be resolved in the controversial pages of Wikipedia (a long shot), then there might be world peace.
