Today Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia anyone can edit, celebrates its tenth anniversary. Events and online activities have been organized to commemorate the day.

“This is the new WikiPedia! The idea here is to write a complete encyclopedia from scratch, without peer review process, etc. Some people think that this may be a hopeless endeavor, that the result will necessarily suck. We aren’t so sure. So, let’s get to work!”
