Wikipedia running out of cash this 2007?

It seems that Florence Devourad, chairwoman of the Wikipedia Foundation, has warned the audience this morning at LIFT that they need more funds to keep servers up and running.

At this point, Wikipedia has the financial ressources to run its servers for about 3 to 4 months. If we do not find additional funding, it is not impossible that Wikipedia might disappear. The warning by Florence Devouard, chairwoman of the Wikimedia Foundation was certainly dire, and Lift07 was as good a venue to make an appeal. But it is another illustration of how difficult it is to find the proper business model in the digital age, and more precisely in this case in what Florence called the gift economy.

My relatives all the time say that I am killing
my time here at net, except I know I am getting experience all
the time by reading such fastidious articles or reviews.
