WikiCamp the unconference

Jimmy Wales recently traveled to Chennai, in India, to take part in WikiCamp, India's first wiki unconference. Wales is the founder of Wikipedia and president of the Wikimedia Foundation. He stayed with Kiruba for two nights while he was there. This conversation includes Wales's take on the difference between Wikipedia and Wikia, advertising or lack of advertising at Wikipedia and the future growth of the phenomenon.

Wikicamp is all about harnessing and understanding the power of Wikis. It is a one day event aimed to bring together the best minds from the Wiki/Internet space to talk about issues, opportunities and what the future and evolution of this valuable tool looks like. Crowd sourcing, Wisdom of crowds, User generated content and collaborative knowledge sharing have become the keywords of today's Internet. Wikicamp aims at demystifying these terms. The event will feature workshops, debates and keynotes on the present state and evolution of the wiki.
