Donating to wikipedia

I donated to Wikipedia before.  However, this year, I'm not donating, and my rationalization is this: there need to be more Wikipedia clones on the internet, to best prevent the possibility that a single organization (Wikimedia) abuses its control of the biggest worldwide information source.  Thus, instead of donating to Wikipedia, I would like to subsidize potential Wikipedia clones.  Whether or not it has ads is of little concern to me.
