There's an interesting article from AOL/BUSINESS 2.0 on Jimmy Wales, creator of Wikipedia.
My own experience has been that Wikipedia has some of the best written, most interesting articles on subjects from geography to films to science, of any source I know. They contain simple explanations and technical descriptions, with links to related topics and well-selected references for more information.
It is hardly hyperbole to say that Wikipedia, almost by itself, delivers on the promise of the Internet, hypertext, and open source to provide high quality information to everyone, at minimal cost (in multiple languages)!
