Wikipedia is 7 years old

On January 15th Wikipedia turned seven years old. In that time, created by unpaid volunteers and with a small budget for operations it has become the 6th largest web site in the world (according to Comscore, December 2007).

Maybe the nature of the Internet changes some of the fundamental assumptions we have about how great works get created and financed? Related is Jonathan Fried's article Välkommen till Internet (Welcome to the Internet) in Fokus.
