SUE GARDNER
Current Status: Wiki wizard



Changing The Game By: Taking the people's online encyclopedia to the next level. Drawing on the Wikimedia Foundation's mission of bringing free knowledge to everybody, executive director Gardner is overseeing a strategic plan to broaden access to Wikipedia’s vast storehouse of information. Her battle plan: making Wikipedia easier to use and available to more people worldwide. Expansion takes money, but it helps to be one of the Web’s five most-trafficked sites. In the depths of the recession, the foundation raised $3 million in ten days, completely covering its 2009 operating budget.



Killer Quote: “The smart geeks are always going to be the heart and soul of what we do. But... the goal is to make the whole editing system more user-friendly so we're not excluding the people who aren’t as tech-centric as our core community.”
