The Story of Wikipedia

Jimmy Wales
Foundation for Economic Education

Jimmy Wales is the founder of Wikipedia, and he's a libertarian and influenced by Austrian economics. He could have been a billionaire, but it was too important to him not to commercialize and commoditize the sum of human knowledge. There's one of your selfish libertarians.

In this lecture, at the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), Wales tells the story of Wikipedia, and talks some about Austrian economics.
