Interesting podcast.  I had no idea that Wikipedia ranked as #5 as the most visited website in the world.  It is amazing that we, the people, literally created this massive online encyclopedia of information largely through volunteers.  This is testament to the power of what we are able to accomplish when people all work together towards a common cause without concerning ourselves with who gets credit.  I love the collaboration between the Smithsonian and Wikipedia.  It is the perfect union between the physical world and the world of technology.  Thanks for sharing.
