WIKIPEDIA NOW HOLDS 10 MILLION ARTICLES

Dick Johnson writes: "A milestone was reached last week when
a German reader added an article on 16th-century painter
Nicholas Hillard to Wikipedia.  It was the 10 millionth
article on the Internet encyclopedia.

"Have you searched a numismatic term or personality on
Wikipedia recently?  I have and I can see ample room for
additional updates. Since the site is entirely reader written,
it is amazing how accurate it can be, and how uniform the
entries are.

"While it is an excellent place to start a new research
project, it cannot serve as the last word. You still must
dig and check on your own."
