Jimmy Wales and Wikipedia

Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of Wikipedia, comes to The Daily Show celebrating Wikipedia's ten year anniversary.

Wales discusses accuracy and bias, academic studies regarding Wikipedia, as well as whether or not he's the founder or co-founder or Wikipedia volunteer.  And what I didn't realize that Wikipedia abides by the laws of Florida.  That's right, the site is non-commercial, open-source, (arguably) democratic, and global happens to be regulated by Florida guidelines.  Wiki's servers are located there.  One of the most trafficked Internet sites, and it's regulated by a state full of retirees.
