Quote:DEAR WIKIPEDIA READERS:
You’re probably busy, so we’ll get right to it. This week we ask our readers to help us. To protect our independence, we'll never run ads. We survive on donations averaging about $15. Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. Yep, that’s about the price of buying a programmer a coffee. We’re a small non-profit with costs of a top website: servers, staff and programs. Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park, a temple for the mind where we can all go to think and learn. When we founded Wikipedia, we could have made it a for-profit company with advertising banners, but we decided to do something different. Commerce is fine. Advertising is not evil. But it doesn’t belong here. If Wikipedia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free another year.
Thank you.

To keep it ad-free...I wonder how that will work out?

Adblock is good ~ used it for years.

However...wiki is so dang useful that last time they ran a funder I chipped in. Ads or not, I'd hate to not see it out on the web.

they reach their goal every year.
and i donate every year.
wikipedia is great although quality and quantity of articles differs from language to language.
eg when i'm reading about something i never heard of i usually visit the english site first just because english sites have a massive amount of information bulked into them so they're perfect for further reading on a subject while the german site is more precise and really goes deep into stuff without any errors in their articles - they're more scientifically oriented while english sites are information oriented.

Julian Assange is worth a donation just for the fact he lived in Nimbin. I actually visited this crazy village a few years ago for the cannabis festival. Don't really remember much after turning up at half seven in the morning, parking my van and buying some weed off a woman who approached me whilst on her way to taking her kids to school. good times.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

I had to google Nimbin and this is what I got.
