Power of the few vs. wisdom of the crowd: Wikipedia and the rise of the bourgeoisie is a study on Wikipedia.

The paper is from the alt.chi track of the CHI conference where the papers are "juried".[1] It is a kind of semi-peer-review.

The authors examined the revision history of the English Wikipedia based on a 2006 dump: 58 million revisions from 4.7 million wikipages og which 2.4 million were articles. They show that the proportion of total edits made by administrators was large around 2002-2004 but then decayed. They found the edit pattern affected by a large growth in population of "low-edit users", an effect they calle "the rise of the bourgeoisie".
