Wikipedia Founder to Speak at Capella University

Sponsored Article

Our Sponsor Capella University provided a release about their online programs.  Capella University was founded in 1993 and provides 76 graduate and undergraduate programs.  They even offer an online phd program.

Capella University will host Jimmy Wales, the founder of the world wide online encyclopedia Wikipedia to speak to attendees, the general public at its Orlando colloquium on December 28th at the Wyndham Orlando Resort.

Wales has been quoted as saying, "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."

Combining the power of knowledge accumulation on an open source platform with knowledge distribution in an online platform could prove to illustrate a unique combination.
