Wikipedia Losing Contributors

People don't want to continually provide content and edit Wikipedia free of charge? The ungrateful jerks will eventually move on to other things like jobs that pay? Say it isn't so!

Despite Wikipedia's wide-reaching popularity, Wales said the typical profile of a contributor is "a 26-year-old geeky male" who moves on to other ventures, gets married and leaves the website. Other contributors leave because, 10 years after the website was launched, there are fewer new entries to add, he said.
