Wikipedia is a multilingual, Web-based, free-content encyclopedia project. The name is a portmanteau of the words wiki and encyclopedia. Wikipedia is written collaboratively by volunteers, allowing most of its articles to be edited by almost anyone with access to the Web site. Its main servers are in Tampa, Florida, with additional servers in Amsterdam and Seoul.

Yes. I definitely use Wikipedia. I used it more than Encarta or Brittanica because they have a lot of good definitions. The site is also user friendly. Once you go to www.wikipedia.com, you will initially see a page where you can choose your language, so basically, anybody can use it. There are also a lot of projects and e-books that the site is supporting. It is very helpful to me and my kids because I can just download e-books for free and then I can get to used them. My kids love their books about planets and animals.

Yes, and I've been using Wikipedia since last year. I first read about this online encyclopedia in a Reader's Digest article last year. I'm really amazed by the features of Wikipedia. It's updated, accurate, multi-lingual, and organized. I think, it is the only online-updated encyclopedia in the internet. Doing research works in the internet is a lot easier and quicker with Wikipedia. What more can I ask for? For everybody out there who haven't been to Wikipedia, visit www.wikipedia.org.
