Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, discusses the ideas behind a free web culture. Wikipedia, with over 11 million published articles, is a free, licensed global encyclopedia written by thousands of volunteers in over 250 languages. Wales talks about the characteristics and challenges of this software and long-term goals related to broadening participation, fostering quality, and increasing worldwide reach. Wales also introduces his new project, Wikia, which is not only an encyclopedia but a complete library; extending the Wikipedia model to create nonprofit educational and research communities. There are also plans for Wikia to launch a search engine that will offer new features like open source software and freely licensed content. The conference concludes with a brief presentation of Creative Commons licensing for Guatemala.
