The source article was interesting, although I'd take issue with some of
their methodology.

The WP gloss takes some liberties; in particular, the source says "The
latest (2012/02/28) publicly available version of the [SIL] database
distinguishes 7,776 languages" while the WP leaps to the conclusion that
"…at least 7,776 languages are in use in the greater offline world."
