The GigaOM Show — Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales

Wow, time does fly. We are on our 19th episode. In this week’s show we chat with Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia and Wikia.

Wales believes simplicity is key to building an intuitive social network website. Which is why sites like Wikipedia and Facebook work so well in the social community. With a recent Wikia-Facebook like screenshot making its way through the web, will Wikia become like Facebook? No. Wales explains that they are working on an open source free license search engine that could launch in December.

This was a fun conversation. You can download the show in HD, QuickTime, Windows Media or Xvid format.
