A perfect example of how the cult intends to spread its infection.

Note how it is uncritically reported that if public institutions want to share public works, the obvious choice is to share it on Wikipedia, because Google. No mention of the fact Wikipedia didn''t intent and certainly don't have the monopoly on open licensing.

Note how he exploited an institution's lack of knowledge of marketing, to persuade them to donate their entire collection on the basis anyone can now use their imagery for free, for any purpose, including commercial use. I wonder if they have any idea what that means for their future revenue potential.

Note how, in these efforts to increase representation and cultural awarenss, there's no actual mention of NZ's indigenous peoples. None of these 33 institutions this old white European looking dude visited seems to be an indigenous entity.

Worse, there's no pushback on this idea it is somehow Wikipedia's purpose to project for the world how New Zealand aren't islamaphobic. Not even remotely their mission, but hey, it brings in the new recruits and donor dollars, so let's exploit tragedy for the film's benefit.

This is how it will be. Wandering High Priests cultivated in the digital SeaOrg, then given a nice pot of donor cash to go walkabout, spreading the Holy Message, stealing people's shit, recruiting the young and feeble minded to overthrow the traditional orthodoxy, and expecting a job at the end of it.
