This news about Britannica is important. Britannica is becoming a pay site.
We need therefore to get the word out that Wikipedia is a free alternative.
How can you help? In the near future, instead of writing Wikipedia
articles, use your Wikipedia time to post on mailing lists and newsgroups
words to the effect that Britannica might be becoming a pay site, but
Wikipedia is free and always will be--and in the space of a few years, it
will be *bigger* than Britannica. They should be quakin' in their boots.
Anyway, please do help. Post to a few mailing lists and newsgroups--get the
word out. It's important we do this *now*, and that we mention (and link
to) the Britannica story. It will gain us many converts.
