    Just $1 million, $2 tops. The rest of the $16 million goes to paying off cronies and no-bid contracts.

    Wikipedia is worth any money only as long as gullible people keep donating. If it allowed advertising, it could make as much money.

    About $1.7 million per year, according to the latest financial statements of the Wikimedia Foundation, owner of the Wikipedia and other wiki domains (the expense for all the sites, most of which is for Wikipedia).

    Worth and the cost of hosting isn't the same thing. I think it wouldn't cost as much as you would think. While they have a lot of information no the site it really doesn't require a lot of storage space because most of the information is text.

    It means that Jimbo manages to make $20 Million a year scamming people into donating to the "Jimbo wants a new car" foundation.
