When the internet was invented many years ago, one man has put the idea of the book into an online encyclopedia and that was the birth of Wikipedia. Jimmy Wales the founder of Wikipedia, recalls that prior to the launch, he assembled legions of volunteer contributors, gave them tools for collaborating, and created the self-organizing, self-correcting, ever-expanding, multilingual encyclopedia of the future, with a vision of for a free online encyclopedia.
