Donate to Wikipedia

I am not ashamed to admit that I love and use a lot Wikipedia. It is fast, convenient and gets most of the technical stuff I typically look up right to the level I can understand and use it. But perhaps most importantly, it is one of the few places on the internet without advertising!

This is something I truly appreciate and I am willing to pay, so every year I do give a small contribution (just USD 10) to keep it like that!

Wikipedia is the #5 site on the web and serves 470 million different people every month – with billions of page views.

Commerce is fine. Advertising is not evil. But it doesn’t belong here. Not in Wikipedia. Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park. It is like a temple for the mind. It is a place we can all go to think, to learn, to share our knowledge with others. >>>
