How can we best tap the collective knowledge of the users of the site for purposes of editing Wikipedia or the like? In this particular case, the domain experts (a lot of them anyways) are going to be on Stack Overflow at some point (most likely all during one day). How can we encourage and solicit those domain experts to help on a targeted campaign to improve specific articles.
Stack Exchange Inc. has long held the motto "We believe our mission as a company is to make the Internet better" and this is one way of doing so. Granted, it is not the responsibility of Stack Exchange Inc. to ensure that Wikipedia is kept up to date, but sometimes it takes domain expertise to really ensure that an article on Wikipedia is all that it should be.
Is this something that we users of the Stack Exchange network can work together on? Is there some way we can use the Stack Exchange sites to improve targeted wikis on a campaign basis? Could we possibly use the same advert model as the open source adverts on the site? That way it could be upvoted as well by the community to prove a request has worth.
Please don't focus on "HOW CAN WE MAKE WIKIPEDIA BETTER" but instead focus on "Since list type questions don't belong on Stack Overflow (or any other stacksite) but they do perfectly well on Wikipedia (and yet still don't exist on Wikipedia), how can we get domain experts to flow that knowledge into Wikipedia so that we don't waste everyone's time on the closing of list questions for topics that do not yet exist on Wikipedia".
For all that this site is full of geniuses, how you people are missing the point and thinking I'm asking everyone to go run over to wikipedia and edit all the articles I don't know. Lists belong on Wikipedia, let's make lists on wikipedia without cluttering the stacks. How do we make lists and not clutter the stacks?
