The State of Wikipedia
In 2011, JESS3 teamed up with Jimmy Wales and the Wikimedia Foundation to create a video commemorating Wikipediaâ€™s 10-year anniversary. Narrated by Jimmy Wales, the animated video details the rich history of the site, profiling the expansive community and explaining Walesâ€™ longterm vision for the web encyclopedia.
Within a few days the video had begun to spread outside the network we had pitched. It received hundreds of blog hits, thousands of retweets, and thousands of Facebook shares. The YouTube video received over 100,000 views and the Vimeo version received over 50,000 views. It was one of the most-viewed videos on YouTube that week and received dozens of YouTube traffic awards.
