"The founder of Wikipedia, the charitably
funded online encyclopaedia,
says that the website is considering carrying advertisements in a move
that could raise hundreds of millions of dollars a year in revenues."
If this is correctly represented, then I guess it really is true that
anyone has their price. I thought better of Wales, though. *Sigh*.
Adding advertisements to Wikipedia would definitly cause a fork.
I hope it happens just because of that. Wikipedia is too valuable to
be left in the hands of Jimmy Wales.
