According to Alexa , Wikipedia has actually grown substantially in terms of traffic and viewership, with reach up 12% in the past 3 months. It's inevitable that with several million articles, the number of "missing" encyclopedic ones drops, and thus fewer new articles are created.

While its random access speed of 0.5msec is half that of other comparitive drives, it's only competitive on read/writes."
