Google lashes out dosh to Wikimedia

They probably weren’t expecting this, but Wikimedia has received $2 million from Google in a fit of generosity.

Jimmy Wales, who founded Wikipedia, tweeted the news to his followers yesterday.

Wikimedia is the umbrella foundation of Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wiktionary.

Google is not evil. Or so it says. And Wikipedia entries are often the first result in a Google search. Wikipedia doesn’t have any advertising – but we suspect it would make a bomb if it had a bit of AdSense, so to speak. Wikimedia is here.
