Cuba creates own version of Wikipedia

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

The Cuban government has decided to launch its own version of Wikipedia.

The Cuban online encyclopedia (at ecured.cu) has just been launched today, although it won’t feature a model of opening editing as Wikipedia does.

Instead, according to a BBC report, changes will need to be approved by an administrator, although exactly who oversees the content vetting process isn’t clear.

The “Enciclopedia Cubana” is written in Spanish and contains nearly 20,000 articles at the moment. It’s very slow to load, however, or at least it was for us.

The website states its role is to “create and disseminate the knowledge of all and for all, from Cuba and with the world.”
