Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the founding of Wikipedia on January 15, 2001.
There were celebrations all over the world — 290 of them on January 15.
We had a conference and party in San Francisco, too:
Complete with cake:
(Incidentally, this image does not give the full scale of the size of the cake — it was nearly 4 feet across. It was meant for 250 – still, there were a lot of leftovers.)
Thank you to everyone who helped with and participated in both San Francisco events — they were awesome.
And as I said last night, if you are someone who helps make the projects happen — an editor, a contributor, a developer, a donor; whether you’re a staff member or a volunteer or an evangelist — thank you. These events were a celebration of ten years of our community, and I am proud to be a part of it.
