Wikipedia Needs $20,000: Here’s some interesting perspective on the evolution of Wikipedia. Three years ago today, they were in a panic because they needed $20,000 to buy some new hardware.
Today, they just happen to be in a middle of another fund raising drive. As of this writing, they have $742,000+ (it goes up every time I look at it), and all of their hardware has been donated by Yahoo.
Progress is good.
