In case you’ve been living your life under a rather large rock, there is this site called Wikipedia, and it one of my personal inspirations. You see, I consider myself somewhat of a sociologist and I am fascinated by any group of people collaborating and focussing on a single goal. To me, Wikipedia is the ultimate embodiment of on-line collaboration and cooperation.
Touchstone has just informed me that Wikipedia has just turned six, which makes it more or less one of the few remaining “old school” start-ups still around from the *ahem*, the ‘you know what’!
I wanted to take the opportunity to extend a warm “Happy Birthday” to the crew over at Wikipedia, and wish them the best of ongoing luck with what I believe, to be one of the best examples of world cooperation ever conceived. Thank-you for showing us a glimmer of what we can become if we work together.
