Jimmy Wales is the founder of Wikipedia and an admirer of Friedrich A. Hayek's work.  In this interview, hosted by Luis Figueroa, he answers various questions about the philosophical ideas behind this virtual community-built encyclopedia.  Wales explains that the original idea for the project stems from Hayek's thoughts on the impossibility of central planning and the existence of disperse knowledge. He also discusses the benefits Wikipedia offers a global society that demands reliable sources of information.
