At the 'Wikimania' event held in Washington held over the past week, several hundred members of the 'wiki' community gathered for talks about the site and a two-day 'hackathon,' aimed at improving Wikipedia. Some in attendance said Wikipedia, the free, open-source online encyclopedia which is largely unchanged from when it began in 2001, needs upgrading in an era where people are turning to social media like Facebook and Twitter.
