Description

Best known for his major role in the founding of Wikipedia, Wales has changed the way we access information. Wales opened collaborative authorship software, called wiki, to the world's Internet users to create a web site with boundless encyclopedic information called Wikipedia. Recently, Wales rushed headlong into a battle against Google to fight for our attention with his launch of Wikia Search, emphasizing transparency and promising less spam. Come hear Wales talk about what's next on his agenda, his opinions on the politics of the Internet and his thoughts on the accuracy of Wiki posts.
