15 years ago the first article went up on the German edition of Wikipedia and the world has not been the same since! Today on the program we’re celebrating this birthday by speaking with the person who posted that first article, Magnus Manske,  who also brought us the software that wiki’s all over the world run on today (Mediawiki). As a bonus, throughout today’s program we will hear great moments in German Wikipedia history complete with my tacky announcer voice.
