Wikimedia gains another angel.

Wikimedia, which runs such web resources as Wikipedia and its sister projects including Wiktionary, Wikibooks and Wikinews have recently gained support from Yahoo. The search engine will be hosting Wikimedia’s content on “a significant number of servers” in Asia free of charge. They will also begin integration into Yahoo! France, providing answers to factual questions.

Wikipedia, for those who don’t know, is a free content encyclopedia that includes over 1.5 million articles, approximately 500,000 in English. It is written collaboratively by contributors from all around the world. Every article is open to be edited and a history page tracks the changes.

Previously Wikimedia has been in talks with Google for web hosting as well and Google’s new Q&A feature also takes answers from Wikipedia as appropriate.
