Abstract
Sustainable innovation in mega-projects. Wikipedia is the greatest social revolution of our time and has evolved into a monolithic distributed community. Typically it is difficult to innovate within large projects. This presentation will explore the potential of small projects like WikiEducator to help leverage the innovation potential of the Wikimedia Foundation's projects.
