Well they're a non-profit organisation and rely on public donations.
Knowledge has to be free
Vikram Sathey Question for you. Why do schools charge fees then?
Who says the education system in India isnt flawed?
Good point. However given that Wikipedia harnesses so much useful information I feel it's one product I'd definitely pay for. It's like as a child my parents paid for the entire encyclopedia set.
I feel sad about this. Wikipedia valuation will be around 10 billion dollars. But they some how didn't develop their revenue model. I don't think they will be able to continue like this. They really need to do something about it.
The thing is everyone goes to wikipedis because it is free. Agar wo bhi paid ho jaega to, no one would go there. Other articles and journals are available for paid ones!
They run crowd funding campaign every year.. not something new.
