Default In pics: Indians behind Wikipedia



The desi connection
Wikipedia, the world's largest online storehouse of collaborative knowledge, turns 10 on 15 January 2011. Wikipedia is now targeting India to further its growth. The first Wikipedia office outside the United States will open in India.

Indians and people of Indian origin have made their presence felt in the world's top technology and Internet companies and the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organisation that runs the online encyclopaedia, is no different. A number of individuals of Indian origin are a part of the core of the organisation.
