Sous-titré: Wikipedia Unbound

Bien que Wikipedia soit une encyclopédie encyclopedia, elle n'est pas assujetti aux mêmes contraintes qu'une encyclopédie papier ou même qu'à la plupart des encyclopédies en ligne.it is not bound by the same constraints as a paper encyclopedia or even most online encyclopedias. La longueur, la profondeur et l'envergure des articles dans Wikipedia sont vituellement infinies. De même que Wikipedia grandit, la puissance de calcul, la capacité de stockage et la bande passante croîssent également. While there is a practical limit to all these at any given time, Wikipedia is not likely to ever outgrow them.

Founder Jimbo Wales has stated his desire that Wikipedia should not become yet another discussion forum. But it definitely is something different from a paper encyclopedia, and Wikipedians should take advantage of that fact.
