Wikipedia … Nearing Completion?

Wikipedia is a never-ending compendium of human knowledge. Anyone can make an article on anything they like, and anyone can edit it. Wikipedia is probably by now your default go-to when you don’t know something. Well there’s big news about wikipedia these days – Article growth and edits are slowing, we’re adding fewer new things to wikipedia every day, and we’re arguing less about the articles already on there. It’s arguable that this is a very good thing, it means that Wikipedia has matured and now contains just about everything that needs defining (obviously as long as we keep creating new knowledge and stuff Wikipedia will continue to grow) and the things that are on Wikipedia are more agreed upon now.

Wikipedia still needs editors though – vandalism still has to be culled and if you’re an expert in your field, please contribute! Read the whole article in the Atlantic of the completion of Wikipedia here
