The Next Web: Wikipedia co-founder’s 8,000-word essay on how to build a better Wikipedia

The Next Web: Wikipedia co-founder’s 8,000-word essay on how to build a better Wikipedia. “I started building online groups on a smaller scale in the mid-1990s, with academic discussion groups. Such groups are actually how Jimmy Wales (the other co-founder of Wikipedia) and I got to know each other.
