wikipedia popularity

Seb posted a couple of graphs charting wikipedia’s daily traffic versus encyclopedia britannica, for 2003 and 2004.  Wikipedia scores more hits for both years, and it appears as though the gap as widened.   The wikipedia meta-wiki cautions that they’ve only measured a slice of Internet users and as such the results shouldn’t be taken too seriously.  Still, a heartening trend.
