» Happy Birthday, Wikipedia! Posted Thursday, January 17th, 2008 at 3:00 pm by John Brian (91 posts) This week, Wikipedia commemorates its seventh birthday : Wikipedia was formally launched on January 15, 2001, as a single English-language edition at www.wikipedia.com, and announced by Sanger on the Nupedia mailing list. Otherwise, there were relatively few rules initially and Wikipedia operated independently of Nupedia.
