What Wikipedia Would Look Like in Book Form...

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

"Using volumes 25cm high and 5cm thick (some 400 pages), each page having two columns, each columns having 80 rows, and each row having 50 characters, ~ 6MB per volume. As English Wikipedia has 4.4GB of text (October 2006) ~ 750 volumes. Note that this is a conservative estimate, as it doesn’t include images, tables etc. which take up more surface than the text which describes them."
