About Wikipedia Place


Wikipedia is arguably the most popular and high volume site on the web. Brion Vibber has been the tech guy since the start. He described the initial architecture on Swampcast as just a couple of LAMP servers in Tampa. Since then the architecture has evolved and many lessons have been learned.
