Free everything from Wikia

Wikipedia, actually Wikia (not-for-profit venture), announced in Paris that it is to offer “free software, free bandwidth, free storage, free computing power, free content over the internet.” It will run using MediaWiki and ALL ad revenue will go back to the bloggers and others who use the service.

On the money side Wales has recently raised several million from private sources and has struck some sort of deal with Amazon.

Don't you just love this stuff.

In fairness, he said he would *like* to and didn't have a clue how they would do it i.e. it's a nice idea but no-one knows yet how to do it. They are not-for-profit, after all, not all-for-nothing ;-)
