EconTalk this week
Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, talks with Russ Roberts, the EconTalk host, 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.
