Wikipedia Hits the Million Article Mark
“Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit behind the online encyclopedia written by its readers, said late Wednesday that an article about the Jordanhill railway station in Scotland became its millionth one.
Wikipedia was created in January 2001. At present, it is growing by about 1,700 articles every day.
Last year, the popular site faced accusations that it couldn’t adequately deal with inaccuracy. Wikipedia acknowledged Wednesday that it faced criticism in 2005 but pointed to a study published in Nature that found it was about as trustworthy as the Encyclopedia Britannica.”
