Ward Cunningham on "The Wiki Way"

November 20, 2011

Before there was Wikileaks, before there was Wikipedia… Before there was Facebook and Twitter and blogs… there was a computer programmer named Ward Cunningham.  He’s the guy who, back in 1995, invented the wiki.  He also did something even more radical.  He didn’t patent it.  He passed up billions of dollars in potential revenue, because he believed the internet needed to be more democratic.   And why did he invent  the wiki in the first place?
