Wikipedia is becoming one of the most popular sources for knowledge on the web. The increasing popularity can definitely be seen just because of the millionth article accomplishment.
The lucky article that happened to be lucky number 1,000,000 was on the Jordanhill Railway Station that is located in Scotland. I could only imagine how many people are going to learn about the Jordanhill Railway Station because that article is being reference all around the web!
The other interesting fact is how popular the English Wikipedia is (which is the one that hit the millionth article marker) when compared to some of the other many languages. The English version has almost three times more articles than the next closest language which is Deutsch. Congratulations to Wikipedia for this well deserved accomplishment.
