Things that matter: Wikipedia

Every year I donate to Wikimedia, the parent organization of Wikipedia.

Why?

First, Wikipedia is more accurate than you think.

Secondly, it is the tth most popular website in the world and the only site in the top ten which is fundamentally about collaboratively generated knowledge.

But the most important reason I donate to Wikipedia is that for many patients it is the first stop. It is the place where you find the terms which lead to the people and the communities and the research. It’s the most important collection of free and open information the world has ever seen and that is surely worth a few bucks a year.
