Wikipedia HQ to move to Silicon Valley - Seeks new CFO

While we have been critical of the 'human-edited' Wikipedia project in recent months, apparently there has been a lot of improvement.

A news story this morning prompted us to re-visit the pages that we used to frequent for a variety of reasons, and we found a pleasant surprise. Numerous volunteers had cleaned-up the commercial invasion of those pages, and they were back to facts, hopefully for good.

There's no doubt that in the sectors that we watch, the project has gained some responsible volunteers.

The Wikipedia Foundation is moving from St Petersburg, Florida to San Francisco shortly and a look at their blog shows a number of open positions including Chief Financial Officer.
