Wikipedia Gets $2 Million Cash Infusion

Wikipedia is getting a $2 million cash infusion from a group started by eBay found Pierre Omidyar. The grant will be used to support the free online encyclopedia’s goals of bringing free educational content worldwide and get the support of more people to help create content. Also, Wikipedia also plans to change the way people enter information by limiting changes to articles about people who are still alive. Approval by an editor will only allow changes to the content. This is one way Wikipedia can stop pranksters from writing bogus news, especially about celebrities.
