Where Are Wikipedia’s Authors Writing From?

Ever wonder who writes all these [mostly] wonderful and informative articles on Wikipedia? You might be surprised to find where the authors live — and in what language they are writing in. It’s no surprise that most articles are written in English and they come from all over the world! But then, try French and you get an idea at where it’s spoken. The interactive map also allows you to search for articles written in Arabic, Egyptian Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew and Swahili. You can then zoom in, click on a dot and get some interesting stats.
