so, there is a book about wikipedia culture titled Good Faith Collaboration, written by Joseph Reager.

Wikipedia‘s style of collaborative production has been lauded, lambasted, and satirized. Despite unease over its implications for the character (and quality) of knowledge, Wikipedia has brought us closer than ever to a realization of the century-old pursuit of a universal encyclopedia. Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia is a rich ethnographic portrayal of Wikipedia’s historical roots, collaborative culture, and much debated legacy.

so, wikipedia now is a culture. Reager said, it is a culture of collaboration.
