G-Wikipedia

Good news: Google is apparently considering making available some servers and unlimited bandwidth for Wikipedia/WikiMedia: BetaNews: Google Offers to Host Wikipedia (via itavisen):

[...] Wiki Media's board of directors is considering a deal and plans to meet with Google in March. The foundation did say that Google will not insert its text based advertising on Wikipedia.

"Google has at least tentatively agreed to give us access to a certain number of dual Xeon servers at one or more of their data centers and with unlimited bandwidth," a Wikipedia administrator said.

"I've been told that there are no strings attached, meaning they don't expect us to do anything for then, such as having Google Ads. In short, this is wonderful news."
