It is estimated that 7% of Web surfers read Wikipedia articles in every browsing session. But do you know the following facts about Wikipedia?

  1. About 8.2 million articles have been contributed to Wikipedia since 2001, a total of more than 1.4 billion words
  2. The English-language version of Wikipedia has about two million entries — about 15 times as many as the largest edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the standard to which it aspires
  3. Specialist sites based on the “wiki” model include Wikible (the Bible) and Wookiepeedia (on Star Wars)
  4. Last month it emerged that many embarrassing Wikipedia entries had been edited by organisations mentioned in them. The Chinese Government erased information about China blocking Wikipedia inside its borders. The CIA tweaked entries on Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon
  5. I am sure you know this already. The term “wiki” is derived from the wiki wiki or “quick” buses found in Hawaii
