Wales on Wikipedia

The latest EconTalk is Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia talking about, well, Wikipedia. The sound quality is not the best—it's very echoey—but I hope it's listenable. It was fun to hear him talk about the influence of Hayek on his thinking. It was also interesting to hear him pronounce the name of the web site. He calls it wi-key-pedia. I (and I think most everyone else) calls it wi–kuh-pedia. Hayek would be the first to point out that he cannot choose what it is called–the pronounciation emerges without being under anyone's control.
