VUB welcomes Jimmy Wales to Ideafest
As co-founder of Wikipedia, Wales considerably democratised access to knowledge. He is currently helping the British government to set up an internet platform that will provide open access to British research.
Wales will be introduced by Flemish cyber-philosopher Michel Bauwens, who established the P2P Foundation, which unites people around the world in digital networks to consume, produce and innovate together.
