 Wikipedia hits 10^6

Congratulations to Wikipedia for acheiving what just three years ago was unthinkable: the creation of its one millionth article. Started in January 2001, Wikipedia is currently both the world's largest encyclopedia and its fastest-growing, with articles under active development in more than 100 languages. Nearly 2,500 new articles are added to Wikipedia each day, along with ten times that number of updates to existing articles.

Wikipedia is created entirely by volunteers who contribute, update, and revise articles in a collaborative process governed by Wikipedia's official "neutral point of view" policy, requiring contributors avoid bias in writing articles. Even articles covering controversial topics can be developed using this process. Contributors build upon each other's changes and flawed edits are quickly repaired.
