Wikipedia Posts Two-Millionth English Article

Some people love Wikipedia for the large amount of useful information on it. Others hate it when they fail college essays because they used Wikipedia as their only source. However, regardless of how good or bad it really is, Wikipedia is immensely popular. Since 2001, the encyclopedia anybody can edit has seen over eight million articles in different languages, boasts 3.4 million editors, and is the sixth most visited website on the internet, behind Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Time Warner and eBay.

The article that claimed the honor of being the two-millionth published was about the Spanish television show "El Hormiguero". Source: Neowin
