Happy Birthday, Wikipedia!

Too bad it's today, January 15th. Today being the day of Steve Jobs' keynote at Macworld, this is going to get missed by many. But not by us: Happy Seventh Birthday Wikipedia (all right, we'll admit it: they emailed us about it).

Yes, Wikipedia was founded on January 15th, 2001.  There's not much to add, except that despite Jimmy Wales' warnings, many people use it as a research tool for papers, and many more use it as a casual research tool.

Don't forget they could still use donations.  And also, let's not forget - today is MLK's birthday as well.

Cool. Yeah, wikipedia's no good for research papers, but the links to sources on it are! They're also no good for humor, as they remove factual statements like "Earth is the biggest planet in the world." But that's what uncyclopedia.org is for.

Wikipedia has been a great thing.
