Jimmy Wales, Wikimedia Foundation

Wikipedia is one of the shining leaders of the free culture revolution taking place on the Internet. Wales will discuss how Wikipedia operates, what lessons can be learned for future projects, and what the future holds for free culture generally.

Jimmy Wales, Wikimedia Foundation:  Jimmy "Jimbo" Wales is the founder of Wikipedia.org, the free encyclopedia project, and Wikicities.com, which extends the social concepts of Wikipedia into new areas. Jimmy was formerly a futures and options trader in Chicago, and currently travels the world evangelizing the success of Wikipedia and the importance of free culture. When not traveling, Jimmy lives in Florida with his wife and daughter.
