Lessening the burden on Wikipedia

Wikipedia is a shared online resource that we all would sorely miss if it went away, people and companies alike. We should all pitch in and support it.

I told someone a few months ago that I have edited several Wikipedia pages. Not substantial edits: in some cases typos; in others citations; in others still, rewriting for clarity and understanding.

They looked at me as if I’d lost my mind. “What a waste of time!”. Minutes later, they talked about contributing to an open source project on Github. I don’t see the difference.

Help Wikipedia if you can, either financially or by improving it.
