On November 11th, 2011, Heemschut ended the festivities of its anniversary year. The one hundred years old Dutch association is occupied with cultural heritage. In 2011, it was our partner with regard to Wiki Loves Monuments.
At a panel discussion I thanked for the collaboration and mentioned some strange facts about Wikipedia and Wikimedia: being in the top ten of the most popular sites in the Netherlands, we have only one part-time employee; we have a youth problem meaning that we have a lack of senior citizens; and if you have ever read a Wikipedia article, maybe it was written by a 13-year-old.
People were astonished but not as much as they were pleased when I reminded them that Wikipedia is only 10 years old, that Facebook and Twitter are huge for less than 5 years, and that 100-year-old Heemschut is possibly going to outlive them.
