The creator of Wikipedia comes to Bulgaria

Date: 05.05.2009

The creator of Wikipedia Jimmy “Jimbo” Wales will arrive in Bulgaria at the invitation of the actress Iskra Angelova and be her guest in the “Night birds” show on BNT. He will open the Mediamixx 2009 festival in Albena on 4 June.

“Imagine a world, where every man on the planet has access to the whole human knowledge. To create and provide such an encyclopedia with the best possible quality to every single man on this planet on his own language – this is me. This is what I do. This is the aim of my life”, says Jimmy Wales.

Wales is creator of the most popular online encyclopedia, which offers over 10 million articles and is maintained only thanks to the free will and intellectual effort of its users on a completely free and interactive principle.

At the moment Wikipedia is one of the 10 most popular sites in Internet, and Jimi Wales has many times been proclaimed one of the hundred most influential people on the planet in various rankings.

Iskra Angelova explains her success to bring the famous Wales to Bulgaria with the fact that just like him, she is also an Ayn Rand follower and co-founder of the Ayn Rand society in Bulgaria.
