I hope you all had a great time celebrating the New Year! What’s more interesting is that your favorite information guide on the Internet, is very close to its 10th birthday on 15th January, 2011. Still confused? I am talking about none other than Wikipedia.
Today, Wikipedia doesn’t need a description. Still I will like all of you to know that recently it completed its fundraiser and successfully raised about US$ 16 million. Whuf… that’s a huge amount of money! What’s more important to know is that Wikipedia has its local chapters all throughout the World today with volunteers all across the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Folks, it’s just not news this time, but various local chapters of Wikipedia all throughout the world have planned of organizing events and meetings to celebrate the 10th birthday.
I am even planning to attend the Pune event which is planned as follows:
Venue: Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies & Research, Atur Centre, Model Colony, Pune.
Time: 1800 Hours
Date: 15 January, 2011
