Join Katherine Maher, Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation, who runs Wikipedia, to see where the world will take knowledge into the future in her inspiring keynote speech.

Knowledge needs to be free – it needs to be in the hands of many, not the few, so that ideas can be shared and developed.

With the advent of the Digital Age, our relationship with knowledge is immediate and intimate, a democracy where anyone can join in.

We can trade tips on Twitter, get the latest news on Facebook, build a history on Wikipedia and build a library of ideas…and change the world in the process.
