Wikipedia celebrates 10th anniversary

Reading time 2 min.

Wikipedia turned 10 on Saturday — a decade of operation for the free encyclopedia built largely by volunteers on the Web.

And, just as anyone would hope for a 10-year-old, Wikipedia is still a bit idealistic, a vestige of the Internet’s early free and heroic days, writes Timothy Garton Ash for The Times’ Op-Ed section.

The site is currently the fifth-most visited Website on the Internet, with about 400 million people visiting each day, looking up information on just about anything — science, math, languages, art, culture, company histories and entries on sports stars, too.
