Wikipedia is 10

In a video, wikipedia celebrates this month its tenth anniversary.

"With more than 17 million articles in over 270 languages, Wikipedia has undoubtedly become one of the most visited and relied upon sites on the web today. More than a million people have contributed to make the site what it is today"

About 400 millions visitors a month.

If you have 3 minutes, watch the video. Want to know more : go to

With CevApps sites, we have got a similar technology. We may not have, internally, 1 million contributors, however anyone may turn into one. Start small, refine, improve. Don't be shy. Write and share.
With Galaxy (version 2 to come soon), we also have a visited place to share and make visible your best stories (contact Communication department)

Wikipedia has revolutionized the way people now collect knowledge. This is crowdsourcing of knowledge. We should not miss this opportunity internally. I'm more than convinced that sharing information and knowledge is a key to our collective success. In many companies, some people still think that mastering information and keeping knowledge for them help them protect their job and power. This is a mistake. The best expert in the world is useless if (s)he can't share with others.

Share now.
