After 24 days, 3 hours, and 18 minutes, Print Wikipedia was fully uploaded on July 12. Over 7,600 volumes have been uploaded for print-on-demand to Lulu.com. In August I will show one volume and a video from the upload process in the exhibition at the ISEA conference in Vancouver. I'll be selling and showing a few volumes in the Internet Yami-ichi at Knockdown Center on September 12th. It has been exciting to see this project fully realized and come to fruition, thank you to everyone who has shown their support.
