You know when you get click happy and you find yourself on the Wikipedia page for The Beatles, then the next you thing you know you are reading about blackbirds, then an hour later you understand how pigeons give birth? Point is, we rely on Wikipedia and the wiki’s to provide us with the facts and information on just about anything we want to know. The State of Wikipedia is an animated short about the founding of Wikipedia and how it has evolved over its first ten years. Celebrating the wonders and back story of Wikipedia narrated by Wikipedia’s founder Jimmy Wales, and animated by Jess3 (the agency behind the excellent ESPN’s TV Ratings 101 with puppets).
