TDYR 404 – Wikipedia Celebrates Its 20th Birthday (Jan 15)

On January 15, 2021, Wikipedia celebrated its 20th anniversary with over 6 million English articles and having just celebrated its 1 billionth edit (Jan 13). In this 404th episode, I talk about this milestone, and my own involvement in Wikipedia editing - and some of the things I've learned over this year.
