Wikipedia Hits Seven Digits

By Deane Barker on September 20, 2004

One million Wikipedia articles: This is awesome. They just hit 400,000 a few months ago. The site has really gathered steam this last year.

The Wikimedia Foundation announced today the creation of the one millionth article in Wikipedia […] Nearly 2,500 new articles are added to Wikipedia each day, along with ten times that number of updates to existing articles.

Later in the article, it gets even cooler:

[…] static versions of Wikipedia are being prepared for release on CD or DVD. Soon to be available are a German language version distributed by Directmedia Publishing, and a bilingual French and English version, included as part of an upcoming Mandrakesoft Linux distribution.
