I am proud to announce that Wikipedia is featured in an article of liberation.fr, one of
the major french news media (paper and web). The article is listed on liberation main
page, so we can expect some good feedback (visitors) for the site. I mention it because
this is our FIRST front page article in a major media, and hopefully, the first of a long
list now. This is a stone for french speaking people.
There are a couple of rather inexact points in the article, but nothing problematic.

For those who wonder, no, it is not possible to edit wikipedia with Netscape 4.5. And no,

I am currently fully realising how addictive Wikipedia can be. I try to make it easier in
reading private mails (thank you for those keeping me up to date with current Wikipedia
gossip, more is welcome ;-)) and updating my blog (for those who read french, please see
for opinions on the political goal of Wikipedia).
I think my next thoughts will be oriented toward what French call "fracture
num�rique", ie, the great gap currently widening between those who have access to the
net versus those who do not (or have a very limited net access). We might think about what
we are *currently* doing : we are certainly improving the amount and quality of
information of those who already have access to information. But we are not bringing
information to those who do not really have access to information.
I miss you all :-(
