  • * Mobile Internet users is projected to overtake desktop Internet users by 2015 with about 2B users * <30% of the world actually has Internet, and <4.5% have broadband use
  • Wikipedia started with Jimmy Wales. He made this declaration at some point in his life – wanting to carry out the idea of bringing all knowledge to all people in all relevant languages. Jimmy was thinking about Wikipedia before the technology even existed. He was thinking about his idea in his time as a day-trader in Chicago. He was an early internet adopter – active on mailing lists, and drifted towards the very early ideas of the internet. He pondered whether these early technologies could lead to something like an on-line encyclopedia.
