MobileRead Wiki is 4 years old

April marks the 4 year anniversary of the MobileRead wiki. Actually it was placed in service on April 10th but there were only some token pages available at that time. Over the next couple of weeks there was quite a bit of work on the site. With the home page taking its final form on April 23rd. You can view the page by looking here. It remained the same for more than a year after that. It looks amazingly like the Main Page today although a few things have been added. No reason to mess with perfection, I guess.

It struggled through the summer and by August 20, 2006 it had 31 pages. Interest was pretty high with 21,133 views and 8 pages had more than 1,000 hits. You can review the history of the site at: Wiki Statistics.
Initially the interest focused on eBook Readers and that continues to be high on the list of topics. As a matter of fact the top ten list of most visited pages has only 2 pages that were not originally written in 2006. The iLiad initially got lots of attention and the last iLiad page only dropped out of top ten a couple of months ago. However lately the wiki interest has favored more generic topics with the exception of the top page, E-book Reader Matrix, which has more than a million hits just on the one page (yes thats 1,000,000). In 2006 there were only 4 devices to compare, the Sony 500, the iLiad, and two Hanlins, but today there is a huge number with more appearing every day.

April 1st this year saw the wiki reach 7,000,000 hits so this anniversary marks the vision of the original posters in making it a valuable resource for this community over the last 4 years. With your help it can continue to be a major resource here at MobileRead. We are adding a million hits about every 3 months these days.

Dale

1 Wiki year equals 10 human years, so yes.

Congratulations to everyone involved! A well-managed wiki is the most valuable resource any community can have. May it grow to be even more definitive.
