Speaker: Angela Beesley

Angela Beesley has been involved with Wikipedia since early 2003. She is also the co-founder and Vice President of Wikia, a wiki hosting service which extends the model of Wikipedia into non-encyclopedic content areas. Until recently, Angela Beesley served as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organisation which runs Wikipedia and a number of other open content wikis.

Prior to her involvement with Wikipedia, Angela was a researcher and test developer for the National Foundation for Educational Research in England and Wales. She has been in Melbourne for almost a year.
