Greetings, I would be interested to know the history of Wikipedia--how it began, where it is based, and who began it. Can you send or direct me to the appropriate web page?
Also I might add--I find it very difficult to figure out how to communicate w Wikipedia--no "contact us" link that I could find; thus I am using this page and hoping someone is checking it,
best wishes, Caverlee Cary
- Hello and welcome! There's a general history of Wikipedia at Wikipedia and History of Wikipedia. Check also our recent press release; contact information for the project leader, Jimmy Wales, is available there. --Brion VIBBER 13:25 Feb 9, 2003 (UTC)
Do dates as part of semantics 
Rather than user David's's proposal of [[1776|foundation]] , I think a better approach would be to create a foundation date Relation or Attribute in the m:Semantic MediaWiki project. Dates are both pages and values in Wikipedia, so I'm not sure which. -- skierpage 05:54, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
