"Wikipedia (Listeni/ˌwɪkɨˈpiːdiə/ or Listeni/ˌwɪkiˈpiːdiə/ wik-i-pee-dee-ə) is a free-access, free-content Internet encyclopedia, supported and hosted by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Those who can access the site can edit most of its articles. Wikipedia is ranked among the ten most popular websites (SSTattler: right now it is 7th) and constitutes the Internet's largest (SSTattler: number 1 in the world!) and most popular general reference work."

Approximate the last 3 years ago, spring 2012, we started to use Wikipedia every week. An article, Feb/22/2014 Why Use Wikipedia in Stroke Survivors Tattler?, tell people why we use about "stroke".  And specifically we copy the "...From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" to the beginning and the ending of the every Wikipedia article. We respect of rules by Wikipedia and you can see it in Wikipedia:About.

This year, 2015, Wikipedia won another award: "In 2015, Wikipedia was awarded both the annual Erasmus Prize, which recognizes exceptional contributions to culture, society or social sciences, and the Spanish Princess of Asturias Award on International Cooperation. Speaking at the Asturian Parliament in Oviedo, the city that hosts the awards ceremony, Jimmy Wales praised the work of the Asturian language Wikipedia users. The night of the ceremony, members of the Wikimedia Foundation held a meeting with wikipedians from all parts of Spain, including the local Asturian community."

Here are two movies about Wikipedia: "Wikipedia, an introduction - Erasmus Prize Laureate 2015" and "Video of Wikimania 2005 – an annual conference for users of Wikipedia and other projects operated by the Wikimedia Foundation, was held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany from August 4 to 8".
