Wikipedia is 12 years old today

It’s January 15 — Wikipedia Day. 12 years ago, the original version of Wikipedia was unleashed on the world. Still going strong; still insane but still cool and still trying to find new ways to be awesome. :)

Next year Wikipedia will become a teenager… what will we see it innovating on then? More mobile interfaces? Better user-to-user interaction and notifications? Sweet sweet wysiwig editing? Hopefully, if schedules are met! Meet us next year and we’ll see…

In related news — today Wikivoyage officially comes out of beta. Wikivoyage began separately but its users recently agreed to merge into the Wikimedia family. Awesome! Welcome everybody!
