Andrea Foster, interviewer for the Chronicle asked, "Higher education helped shape the Internet. What is its role now?
"Sadly, a diminished one. It's to academia's enduring disappointment that Wikipedia had to be invented by a [private entrepreneur] named Jimbo. So many projects by universities and libraries are about knowledge and information online, and they just couldn't get Wikipedia going, or anything like it. I don't see academia rising to the challenge and trying to figure out how this wonderful network can meet its goals of bringing information to the world."
