I’m a big advocate of freedom: freedom of speech freedom of expression freedom of thought.
My view is that good community management is like having good municipal government: You should be able to have dissenting opinions and so on freedom of speech but your grandmother should also be able to walk down the street at night without having to worry about getting mugged.
I have zero interest in sports of any kind – professional college or international.
I have always viewed the mission of Wikipedia to be much bigger than just creating a killer website. We’re doing that of course and having a lot of fun doing it but a big part of what motivates us is our larger mission to affect the world in a positive way.
I have always liked the idea of going to print because a big part of what we are about is to disseminate knowledge throughout the world and not just to people who have broadband.
I think it’s a mistake to treat different realms of knowledge as if they are some how fundamentally the same.
Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. That’s what we’re doing.
What can we put into the hands of people under oppressive regimes to help them? For me a big part of it is information knowledge – the ability to defeat propaganda by understanding it.
