Jimmy Wales: 2 Million Articles Down and More to Do | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

KEN's KEY TAKEAWAY:

I am sharing this for the sake of curation.  It is an interesting historical interview of how Jimmy Wales felt about the progress of Wikipedia when they completed the 2 millionth article in 2007
