Jimmy Wales, a self-described objectivist, founded Wikipedia in 2001. Wikipeida aggregates information through collaboration by an online community of volunteers and it is currently the most popular reference in the world. Wikipedia revolutionized our understanding of both what "information" is and what an online community is capable of doing. It democratized information and became a new paradigm for the future. Imagine if we could aggregate power in this manner? That is a model going forward for the Coffee Party.
