Vanity Wikipedia

I was looking at the Wikipedia entry for the Open Rights Group, and I was surprised at how many people have entries on Wikipedia. I’m not implying that the people listed do not deserve entries, but reading so many interesting bios got me thinking as to how many people are entering their own personal details into the free encyclopedia. Is there any qualification of who should be listed? What qualifies a person for Wikipedia fame? Do you just post your own small blurb with links? Is it ethical to list yourself on Wikipedia? Can you just get a friend to create your entry?
