What does Jimmy Wales take on religion
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales: "If Turkey arrests me ..."
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales on the legal battle with Turkey over the banning of the encyclopedia and why China is being smarter about the blockade.
Die Presse: You are one of the most famous internet entrepreneurs, but not as rich as others. Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates are billionaires. Your fortune is estimated at one million euros. Is there a problem with how performance is assessed for society?
Jimmy Wales: No, I don't think so. It's not a big social problem.
Wikipedia could generate millions in advertising revenue annually. Why do you forego it?
Wikipedia lives from the community and our mission: A free encyclopedia for everyone in their own language. We are primarily concerned with the creation process. All organizations follow the money. Such a business model creates incentives that are difficult to resist. Wikipedia does not use click baits. We're not trying to push anyone into articles that have better advertising revenue. Wikipedia remains true to its mission so that the next billion people can use the encyclopedia.
So would you never introduce a paywall?
No, definitely not. That doesn't make sense to us.
