More from Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger

Larry Sanger was originally hired to develop Nupedia, the precursor to Wikipedia. These two articles on Slashdot make up a brief history of the development of the open-source encyclopedia project. Though hardly a partial observer (Sanger left Wikipedia over, it seems, “creative differences”), I find the author’s pieces useful to read for their history and perspective.
