Because Wikipedia is information and facts and there are no subjective perspectives or interpretations on the basic text level, there is no sign of Roland Barthes intention. However the mere fact of it being a Wiki designed to make information free and for everybody creates this meta-level which definitely has some Roland Barthes. People are encouraged to write themselves and this activation is a direct opposition to consumption since it is based on creating and not receiving. There are no rethoric or discussions but it does stand as a good beginning of activating people. Web 2.0 has potential.
