Wikipedia is Ten years Old



Wikipedia, the San Francisco-based online encyclopedia, is 10 years old today.

The free-content project was launched by US entrepreneur Jimmy Wales on its own domain, wikipedia.org.
"I remember that first day," said Jimmy Wales in his speech marking the anniversary."I clicked on edit and I wrote 'Hello World' and that was the beginning of Wikipedia and all the things that have come since then."
The site was set up as an offshoot of Nupedia because editors on that website were unhappy about the idea of allowing users to add or edit content; that website closed in 2003.Wikipedia was the first site to allow the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser.
It used a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG - what you see is what you get - text editor.
To date, Wikipedia has more that 3.5 million articles and nearly 23 million pages in total.
The company relies on some 100,000 regular contributors who work for free and the general public to write and edit its articles in 270 languages.The site carries 17m articles in English, adding 1,100 per day.Wikipedia allows almost anyone to add or alter entries without oversight.
