Here is a very telling and interesting retrospective on Wikipedia and how it began. After being around for 10 years, it is finally time to get some good info on the site. I always wondered who started it, who the hell edits it, how does it grow so fast, and about 10,000 other questions.
According to the video; “the State of Wikipedia not only explores the rich history and inner-workings of the web-based encyclopedia, but it’s also a celebration of its 10th anniversary. With more than 17 million articles in over 270 languages, Wikipedia has undoubtedly become one of the most visited and relied upon sites on the web today. ”
