Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales, was in Montreal yesterday to give a keynote address at Webcom Montreal.

You might have never heard his name before, but this man has changed the way we live and access information forever – making knowledge attainable and free for people around the globe.

In our interview, Wales talked to me about open source licensing and how it is transforming the face of the internet.

We also chatted about such various subjects as the video-era, students in India, copyright issues, geotagging and this mysterious thing called Werewolf, of which Wales is a big fan.
