A good worldwide public service is to edit Wikipedia articles is in need of updating.

For instance: I just updated the Techniscope Wiki to include the fact that Aaton, Arriflex, and Panavision all have 2-perf cameras available now or soon to be released.

As long as you stick to what everybody thinks, rather than what you actually know! Otherwise some other "expert" will "correct" you.
Been there, done that...

It's worth sticking it out though, don't go in unless you've got the evidence to support yourself, and then stick it out. ;)

It can be frustrating to see some pseudo expert spouting nonsense, but fortunately wikipedia allows you to get help from impartial editors, who don't care who you are, so long as you can substantiate you edits.
