Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia that can be edited by anyone and that aims to provide free encyclopedic information to its readers. The pioneering concept and technology of Wiki comes from Ward Cunningham, the concept of a free online encyclopedia from Richard Stallman. It was formally launched on 15 January 2001. Initially it was created as a complement and 'feeder' to the expert-written English-language encyclopedia project 'Nupedia', in order to provide an additional source of draft articles and ideas. It quickly overtook Nupedia, growing to become a large global project, and originating a wide range of additional reference projects. Today Wikipedia includes several million freely usable articles and pages in hundreds of languages worldwide, and content from millions of contributors.
