Media[edit]

  • On Friday Jan 14th 2011, radio station KGNU (88.5 FM Boulder, 1390 AM Denver, 93.7 FM Nederland) interviewed local organizers Neal McBurnett and Rick Block about Wikipedia in honor of the 10th anniversary. It was a 10-minute segment on the "Morning Magazine", which aired at 8:15 (15:15 UTC). Notably, it is liberally licensed (like wikipedia) under the w:Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license, and is available for download or streaming at Wikipedia 10th Anniversary Interview.
