Wikipedia founder to give away Web hosting news


Wikia Inc. plans to offer a free online application hosting service in the near future, but has no idea how it will make money from it.

Set up by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales in 2004, Wikia’s goal is to encourage the sharing of information. It hosts Web sites for free, using wiki software to let its customers and their readers edit the sites freely. Wikia asks its customers to share their content under a variety of Creative Commons or GNU licenses.

“Open source was the beginning. Free culture is what’s happening next,” Wikia CEO Gil Penchina said Monday, announcing the company’s plans at the Le Web 3 conference in Paris on the future of social media.
