Thanks Bishakha for pointing it out.

Lets see what coverage they give.

>> San Francisco, January 15, 2011 -- On this day ten years ago, a
>> website with a funny name invited people everywhere to come together
>> to create a free encyclopedia. The initial results were underwhelming.
>> The article "Astronomer" simply said: "Scientist whose area of
>> Research is Astronomy." Sweden: "Country in Northern Europe.
>> Inhabitants are called Swedes. Language spoken is Swedish. Capital is
>> Stockholm." Physics: "Physics is a very broad subject."
>>
>> Following these humble beginnings, Wikipedia grew quickly, and 1,000
>> articles were written in less than a month. Over the next five years,
>> many new language versions were launched, and Wikipedia began to
>> surpass traditional reference sources in breadth and depth. The secret
>> to its success: anyone can edit any article. In January 2006,
>> Wikipedia volunteer Gareth Owen wrote on his user page: "The problem
>> with Wikipedia is that it only works in practice. In theory, it's a
>> total disaster."
>>
>> Wikipedia is now consulted by more than 400 million people every
>> month. It provides instant access to high quality and in-depth
>> information, free of charge and free of advertising. In the last
>> decade, a vast and unique global volunteer community has come together
>> to create more than 17 million articles in 270 languages, advancing
>> the cause of free knowledge for every person on the planet.
>>
>> Today, January 15, the Wikipedia community is coming together in
>> almost 300 locations all over the planet to celebrate the 10th
>> anniversary of the free encyclopedia. From a conference in New York to
>> a concert in Prague, from the launch of a new school project in
>> Nairobi to a museum bootcamp in Amsterdam, from a beer-meet in
>> Bucharest to a film screening in Tel Aviv, the events are organized by
>> volunteers and Wikimedia chapters, as well as independent supporters.
>> The events are open to participation by anyone and reflect the
>> diversity of the community.
>>
>> Wikipedia is operated by the Wikimedia Foundation, a charitable
>> non-profit organization established by Wales in 2003. It is entirely
>> supported by donations, and just completed the most successful
>> fundraiser in its history, with more than 500,000 individual donations
>> totaling more than $16 million.
