TED Talk Wikipedia – Volunteer driven product

Have you seen TED talk by Jimmy Wales about Wikipedia ? (pretty old but I have stumbled on it yesterday)

Please check it out!

TED Talk Wikipedia by Jimmy Wales

I think what it proves is that salary and other benefits, that so many company offer just to retain you, are secondary, comparing to the values and ideas that your company promotes.

In Wiki case, Having thousands of volunteers working 24/7 maintaining the platform absolutely for free, with only one goal – to make knowledge available to everyone – is mind-blowing!

On the side note – when you finished watching, please post your thoughts in the comments, would love to hear those!
