Should We Memorialize Wikipedia In 1,000 Physical Books?
PediaPress wants to create a hardcopy of the world's most extensive encyclopaedia.
PediaPress is an on-demand printing startup that gives you a way to create permanent copies of your favorite online Wikipedia articles. The company wants to try and print the entire English Wikipedia encyclopedia – which would amount to 1,000 books, and a total of more than one million pages.
The first volume has already been printed, which includes articles from “A” to “A76 motorway,” and if the other 999 books came into existence, they would contain more than 4 million articles. The company is trying to raise $50,000 and recently launched an Indiegogo Campaign to help them achieve this goal.
