Instead of using its content, I started editing some articles,’’ he said.* *Like Kunameara, many people in the age group of 10 to 30 are using and generating content on Wikipedia.* * * *Now, Wikipedia is encouraging Indian youth to become content generators and editors, as well as being the end users. * *At the two-day conference, workshops like Editahon and Hackathon, will teach students how to edit content on Wikipedia and will give chance to tech savvy youth to develop components for mobile applications, offline open source application and improving its interface.* Regards Tinu Cherian pr...@wikimedia.in http://wiki.wikimedia.in/In_the_news Important Note : The publisher ( DNA / Dainik Bhaskar ) of the above news article owns the copyrights of the article / content.
