Wikipedia turns 10 years old today, January 15, 2011. And to celebrate, they’re hosting over 400 events worldwide. It was in 2001 when Jimmy Wales first greeted “Hello World” and a decade later, his website has become the biggest source of information on the internet.
With 410 million unique visitors per month, Wikipedia has been every student’s best friend. It has penetrated pop culture and we’re very sure that everyone who has ever needed information online has visited their site.
And as a special feature, below now is a special video of Wales, with his message on Wikipedia’s 10-year anniversary. Happy birthday Wikipedia!
