Wikipedia 10 years old: Party in the AHM

In 2011 it will be 10 years since Wikipedia was founded. This special occasion will be celebrated with a range of activities organised by Beelden voor de Toekomst (Images for the Future) in cooperation with the Amsterdam Historical Museum and Wikimedia Netherlands.
