We are extremely pleased to have our newest Berkman fellow, Wikipedia
founder and community leader Jimmy (“Jimbo”) Wales, here with us this week in
Cambridge. His legacy in the Internet & Society space is
already assured. We’re looking forward to learning much more
about what’s behind the Wikipedia and Wikipedia News phenomena.
Join us tonight at 8:30 p.m. at Pound Hall, room 101, on the HLS campus
for a public lecture by Jimbo.
Jimbo tells us that Wikipedia has just surpassed not only Expedia, Geocities, and other big sites — but also the New York Times in terms of daily page views.
WAYS TO BE HERE IF YOU ARE NOT HERE: There’s a webcast of the lunch going on right now and, I suspect, an
IRC going (SJ is right in front of me with an IRC client open, it
appears…). J has directions and more. There’s also a transcript of the IRC session for Wales’s talk in JZ’s class last night.
