"The Wikipedia Story" wiki invites Wikimedia community members to
help write the "next chapter" for Wikipedia. The result will appear
in the hardback book "The Wikipedia Story: How a bunch of nobodies
created the world's greatest encyclopedia" a nonfiction work which
will be released in January 2009 by Hyperion in the US.

Many already know I have been writing this book for over a year, after
being a community member for over five years, attending three
Wikimanias and conducting countless interviews with Wikipedians around
the world.

I'm inviting the community to collaboratively write the
last chapter as a demonstration of what the Wikipedians
can do. Details can be found here:
