Wikipedia alive and kicking for six years – Happy Birthday Wikipedia!

17 01 2007

Wikipedia is a fantastic example of world-wide volunteer collaboration. Over six million articles, over 250 different language versions, Wikipedia is global knowledge at it’s best. While it has it’s critics, Wikipedia‘s biggest strength is not that it has been free of criticism and scandal (it hasn’t), but that it has used every downside to improve, evolve and expand. Even the people who leave Wikipedia and move on to other similar projects are all in “Wikipedia mode”, publishing, improving and sharing.

Wikipedia provides a better public service than many governments. That’s something to think about.
