RE: decent guy in charge of wikipedia

Yes, he is a decent guy for sure. But Jimmy Wales is the co-founder and president, not the owner, as nobody owns it, since Wikipedia is a non-profit foundation. But yes, he could have been made a very rich man if he was the owner instead. The other interesting thing is that Wikipedia while being worth a ton of money, has never accepted or sold any ads on its pages at all, and as you noted, it would had been worth billions had he and his co founder gone about the place as being run as a business for profit instead. But that wasn't what he wanted out of it, as some people (the smart people) don't care about money. The fact that there's no ads at that place is one reason why so many love the site in the first place.
