SXSW2006: Jimmy Wales, Uber Wikipedian

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the March 24th, 2006

While in Austin, Texas for SXSW Interactive, Irina corners Jimmy Wales, a man hated by ivory tower encyclopedians everywhere for his Wikipedia. Jimmy tells us about the brutal Danzig/Gdansk edit wars, Wikipedians from the shire, David Hasselhoff, Alabama and grits. Episode links: jimmy wales, wikipedia, danzig/gdansk, shire, wikipedian1, wikipedian2, hasselhoff, nice people

    David Hasselhoff definitely IS popular in Germany: 1. Knight Rider 2. “Looking For Freedom” (which was a no. 1 hit in Germany – it was 17 (seventeen) weeks in the German charts).
