Wikipedia - wikipedia

Last night I was awoken with a start in the middle of the night by an unanswered question, what happens if you look up "wikipedia" in Wikipedia? Finally, once all hope of returning to sleep was lost, I had to crawl out of bed and find out. Wikipedia is a wiki-based free content encyclopedia which includes almanac-like and gazetteer-like information. Free means free to use, free to edit, and free to copy and redistribute. Wikipedia is multilingual, and an open-content, collaboratively developed creation, managed and operated by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. As of March 2004, it contains over 220,000 articles in English, and over 290,000 articles in other languages.
