Wikipedia meets their fundraising goal: $16 million

Network World reports that Wikipedia has successfully reached their $16 million funding requirement for 2011. Looks like Jimmy's face on the front page has done some good after all.

I must agree. Advertising does not belong in Wikipedia:

Commerce is fine. Advertising is not evil. But it doesn't belong here. Not in Wikipedia.

Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park.
