Happy birthday Wikipedia


10 Years with Wikipedia

Today it is 10 years ago that Wikipedia started. I must say they have been a huge success. After Google I think it is my most used source for knowledge. Wikipedia has more than 3.5 million articles (in English) and the website is available in 262 languages. Imagine what we did before wiki? Looked it up in a book? 😉

If you wonder how big an success full Wikipedia is I can inform you that they have an Alexa rank of 6 (May 2013).

Congratulation Wiki, and keep up the good work.

    Can’t believe that wiki only has been around for 10 years. It feels like it has been there forever.
