The Hindu, a widely read English-language Indian newspaper, profiled Tamil Wikipedia in "The Tamil Wiki...six years on" on 21 May 2009. Although the Tamil language has almost 70 million native speakers, Tamil Wikipedia has grown slowly, with fewer than 20,000 articles. (Tamil is ranked 15th among all languages in number of native speakers, but is only the 68th largest Wikipedia.)
Wikizine reports that "New account creations on that wiki doubled on the day the article was published."
BBC Radio 4 is producing a four-part comedy series called Bigipedia, created by comedians Nick Doody and Matt Kirshen. Doody describes the premise as "a piss-take of Wikipedia, with all the same inaccuracies, written by nutters."
