+ - Jimmy Wales on what's next for Wikimedia->

Submitted by

coondoggie writes "The role Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia, plays at the organization that supports the user generated and edited encyclopedia is changing as he shifts more of his time to activities in the wiki and open source communities, and shares time with his for-profit venture, Wikia. But despite a much busier schedule, Wales believes he'll be able to keep up with the new changes, and they'll give more people in the community a chance to step up and shine. The organization that collects the donations that support Wikipedia and other wiki projects, the Wikimedia Foundation, in fact, plans to double in numbers over the next year or so as it tries to build itself into a model organization similar to the International Committee of the Red Cross. http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/18365"
