Wikimedia is nowhere *close* to the largest MySQL
user. It's a
mid-sized MySQL user at most. It's one of the largest *websites*
using MySQL, but there are data warehouses and whatnot that have
vastly larger databases, and definitely more valuable ones. Besides,
we don't pay them any money, unlike some of their enterprise users.
What can be more valuable than a general knowledge? Some lists of
personal info or another statistical data, which will become outdated
Only a non-completely free databases of scientific works and
such as ArtStor are coming to my mind as being really comparable to
what wikipedia offers..
