Wiki on Wired

Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, has 490,000 articles — in English alone. All together, including its French, German, Italian, Chinese, Spanish and many other versions, it has well over 1.3 million entries.
But without its 16,000 contributors, Wikipedia would be about as useful as a moldy 1978 edition of Encyclopedia Americana. With them, Wikipedia has become the world’s largest effort of its kind, and one that is compared to Encyclopedia Britannica in terms of quality and breadth.

This is just the beginning of the Wired article Wiki Becomes a Way of Life. A good article about the wonderful Wikipedia.
