Happy birthday, dear Wikipedia!

Today, 15 January 2011, Wikipedia has completed exact 10 years of existence. This free online encyclopaedia is a great revolution on the Internet and it is one of the most viewed websites in the world.

Wikipedia: 10 years of sharing the sum of all knowledge

Wikipedia: 10 years of sharing the sum of all knowledge

Wikipedia lets the reader be more than a reader, becoming a writer and contributing to one of the best knowledge database ever! One feature that no printed encyclopaedia can offer. Besides, where else one could find an article about, e.g., Geoff Crammond? Or Chocobo? Or Crashgate? Or Serial ATA? Well, you got the point.
Beside this success, there are thousands and thousands of people, just like you, contributing to build an outstanding and reliable database about much more things than one can ever know in his lifetime. According to Wikipedia, “there are more than 91 000 active contributors working on more than 17 000 000 articles in more than 270 languages”. Impressive, huh?

Today, you are invited to celebrate with Wikipedia. There are 430 events you can attend. Learn more here: http://ten.wikipedia.org

Happy birthday, Wikipedia! I wish you live many years, spreading the knowledge worldwide.
