Jimmy Wales Podcast

Jimmy WalesFor those of you who haven’t heard Jimmy Wales (of Wikipedia fame) in person, the ABC radio in Australia provides a podcast of his recent presentation here. Featured on Big Ideas, May 6, 2007, you can listen to the whole program either as streamed RealAudio or download as a podcast. I’ve been working the “open source” metaphor for renewing schools and in his presentation, Jimmy Wales used a terrific analogy comparing designing a restaurant to how schools often view potential dangers. The program is definitely worth a listen if just for this piece (it comes after about 30 minutes).
