Jimmy Wales – Hello World

Jimmy Wales – An Introduction

In the form of Wikipedia, the American entrepreneur Jimmy Wales established a universally accessible platform and infinite source of information that – especially for students – it is impossible to imagine life without.

During the official celebration of the University of Maastricht’s 39th anniversary, four outstanding individuals were awarded an honorary doctorate for their exceptional contributions to academic education and research or their contributions to society. We made short video portraits of each of them for the award ceremony.
