 Hear from Katherine Maher, the chief executive director of the Wikimedia foundation, about how a community of volunteers from  around the globe built- and operates- one of the world's most popular websites. Roughly a billion people visit Wikipedia every  month, seeking knowledge in nearly 300 languages. 

 The Wikimedia Foundation operates Wikipedia and Wikimedia's other free knowledge projects and offers support to a global  community of 80,000 volunteers and 100 affiliate organizations around the world. The Wikimedia Foundation is the non-profit  organization behind Wikipedia, one of the world's most beloved websites. Our vision is a world in which every single human can f  freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
