Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia founder on “The Daily Show”

Jon: The impressive thing is to create something that is the fifth most visited web site and not feel the urge to completely monetize it. Have you felt that urge?…

Jimmy: No. For us, for me, Wikipedia is something that I hope is really important culturally. We’re a space is that’s not commercial; we’re a space where people can go to learn and reflect, share knowledge. We’re global in scope, trying to share free information with every single person on the planet, in their own language.
