Jimbo Wales is being interviewed by Slashdot, and the interview may appear tomorrow (Thursday) morning. He mentioned Wikipedia in the interview, and we may experience a substantial surge in traffic. Based on what has happened to other wikis mentioned on slashdot, we might expect to see some vandalism. If all the active participants could log in a bit more often tomorrow to keep an eye on things, that would be great.
Notice, we've added a little something to the top of the page: "Get involved! Wikipedia is a free community project!" And also another "Edit text of this page" link, now at the top of the page. We're hoping to make it clear to visitors unfamiliar with the wiki concept (which is most of them) that this is a community-edited project.

Also -- Google has found us! Only a few hits so far..

I think we are over 1000 pages now. If we create 1000 pages a month, we will be able to hit 100,000 pages in only 8 years. However, I think that as we grow, we will attract more people to work on the pages, and we'll end up growing faster and faster.
So far, the search engines have not found us. --Jimbo Wales

We've added some rules to consider for you to consider, sign, modify, and add to. But those of you who don't like rules can go about your business. Ain't wiki great? :-)

I uploaded it to the server. I suspect we should resave it as a different file type.
