What is Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia, written collaboratively by the people who use it. It is a special type of website designed to        

     make collaboration easy, called a wiki. Many people are constantly improving Wikipedia, making thousands of changes per

     hour. All of these changes are recorded in article histories and recent changes. For a more detailed account of the project,

     see About Wikipedia. (Wikipedia Introduction Page)
