I think we are over 1000 pages now. If we create 1000 pages a month, we will be able to hit 100,000 pages in only 8 years. However, I think that as we grow, we will attract more people to work on the pages, and we'll end up growing faster and faster.
So far, the search engines have not found us. --JimboWales

We're up to 900 pages as of this morning!
There are whispers that the newest version of the software that runs WikiPedia will soon arrive. This means no longer will we have to indicate links LikeThis.
Bomis.com has put up a link to Wikipedia, Nupedia.com has taken theirs down (from the main page) but put up a new one in [the member area] which supplements the one already on [the about page].

Inspired by WikiPedia, I started an similar project for my local Esperanto group. It uses real html.
If you are interested in or if you have any suggestions, just give me a hint! -- firstname.lastname@example.org
Please post the address of your wiki, please!

TimShell is working on an enormous "Cliff Notes"-style summary of AynRand's book AtlasShrugged. We have also been graced with an enormous entry about ErnestHemingway.
We've added some RulesToConsider for you to consider, sign, modify, and add to. But those of you who don't like rules can go about your business. Ain't wiki great? :-)

TimShell found this cool image file:
I uploaded it to the server. I suspect we should resave it as a different file type.
I have also uploaded LarrysText to the server, so now WikiPedia has a veritable boatload of philosophical content. Now all we have to do is wikify it and remove the bullshit. :-) -- LarrySanger

I am adding a page called NobelPrize, where we can list all the winners by category, and eventually fill in with short biographies.
We're up to 617 pages. Very many of these have substantial and what appears to be reliable information. I predict 1,000 by February 15. WikiPedia is growing steadily in breadth and depth.

WikiPedia has definitely taken a life of its own; new people are arriving every day and the project seems to be getting only more popular. Long live WikiPedia!

GNU people are using WikiPedia to discuss their stuff, which is very cool. Go to GNUStufF to partake.

Wikipedia-L (see WikipediaL), a new mailing list for Wikipedia, now exists!
On January 15, 2001, Wikipedia.com "went public." An earlier version existed briefly on Nupedia.com from Jan. 10-15.
