On this day in 2001, internet projects developer Lawrence Mark Sanger and entrepreneur and philanthropist Jimmy Wales first launched the Wikipedia website, a universal encyclopaedia that aimed for authoritativeness through collaboration and peer-review, living and dying both by the procrastination principle.
