Jimmy Wales, “On Wikipedia”, Econtalk, 2009/03/09

Wikipedia is often discussed in a social context, but there’s an economic perspective that can also be applied.

Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the birth and growth of Wikipedia. He talks about the role of Hayek’s insights into the design of Wikipedia, how Wikipedia deals with controversy, the reliability of Wikipedia relative to traditional reference sources and the future possibilities for projects that rely on voluntary contributions of time and creativity
