Wikipedia is half your age

Posted: January 20, 2011 by Kevin M. Lerner in Uncategorized

So, Comm and Society bloggers. Let’s assume you’re roughly 20 years old, which seems like a pretty good guess. Well, your favorite (and again, I’m making an assumption here) source, Wikipedia, has just turned ten. This is a link to the On the Media transcript about the birthday. It’s worth a read and/or a listen.

But if Wikipedia is ten, and you’re 20, then you’ve probably known about it as long as you remember knowing about almost anything online. I don’t know that there’s a question here, but for me, it’s strange because I was already older than you when it first appeared, and for you it’s always been a fact of life. Does that mean anything besides the fact that I’m old?
