Executive summary: Co-Founder of Wikipedia
Co-founded online encyclopedia Wikipedia, for which he was a paid employee. He has since left, joining the Digital Universe Foundation in 2005. From there he took a leave of absence the following year, founding "Citizendium", a fork of Wikipedia with more stringent editing rules and a much smaller group of authors working on it. Lately, there seems to be a move to discard the legacy Wikipedia content and start Citizendium with fresh articles.
