No System Goes Un-Gamed

And if you change the rules, you change the games people play.

In Angola, Wikipedia is free to visit on people’s cellular plans. Visits there won’t count against their relatively small data limits. This seems like such a nice idea, doesn’t it? Information can truly be free.

Except.

Angolans started swapping pirated movies over Wikipedia. Because, hey, it’s free.

I think I’m impressed by the creativity, but it does show once again that we just can’t have nice things anymore. Someone will always destroy it purposefully. Sad.
