Wikipedia reaches 10 million articles!


Big shout out to everyone at Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation for reaching 10 million articles! The record breaking entry was an article on English artist Nicholas Hilliard written in Hungarian. Hungarian of course being the language native to a country called Hungary. Sometimes I surprise even myself.

Wikipedia reaches 10 million articles!

I wonder what ol' Nick who died in 1619 would think about being the 10 millionth article in a collaborative online encyclopaedia powered by electronic computers connected through a globally spanning network… makes you think.
