More Yahoo mojo? (-:
We read a few weeks ago about how Google might help the Wikipedia by providing server space and bandwidth.
A few minutes ago I spotted this news release about Yahoo announcing or perhaps better said, enhancing a relationship with the Wikipedia Foundation. Yahoo will provide Wikipedia with hardware and other resources.
"Yahoo! has been Wikipedia's longest-standing corporate supporter and with this dedication of resources we will be able to offer Wikipedia content to a growing worldwide audience, while maintaining full flexibility in our ability to expand relationships and freely distribute our works."--Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikimedia Foundation
Also, the news release mentions that in the next few weeks a Wikipedia shortcut will be available on Yahoo (in several languages) that will place Wikipedia content directly onto the results page. Presently, a shortcut provides content from the Columbia Encyclopedia directly onto the results page. Here's an example.
Also, a look at a Wikipedia/Yahoo shortcut from Yahoo France.
