Not Your Father’s Encyclopedia

Jwn Young sent over a nice Wired Story on The Wikipedia, a free multilingual encyclopedia created entirely by volunteers on the Internet, published its 100,000th article. More than 37,000 articles populate the non-English editions.

Unlike traditional encyclopedias, which are written and edited by professionals, Wikipedia is the result of work by thousands of volunteers. Anyone can contribute an article — or edit an existing one — at any time.

Wikis, funny name, good stuff.
