The cofounder of the web’s fourth-largest site tells what’s wrong with our notions of performance-based advertising and user-generated content.
It’s hard to say which is more surprising: that the fourth-largest website has only two dozen employees or that it doesn’t make any money. But one thing that almost never raises an eyebrow about Wikipedia.org is that it’s outrageously popular.
