I thought some of you might be interested in this. ;-)
A few months ago SOS Children UK and the Wikimedia Foundation announce the 2008/9 Wikipedia Selection for Schools, which happens to be the largest collection of information since the project started back in 2006. In fact, this edition contains 34,000 images and over 20 million words, which is comparable to a twenty volume set of encyclopedias captured on a single DVD.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this; Wikipedia is a free, multilingual encyclopedia project supported by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation.
