Activating a reading Community

You need to have a reading community before you can expect an editing community. Barriers for reading communities:

  • Accessibility: Access to technology.
  • Make wikipedia more visible to these reading communities.
  • Allow enough time for such a community to form.

Whose responsibility is it to create a reading community???

Sister projects

What other projects besides wikipedia that are suitable for new users?
