Overview of topic:
A glimpse into some of the milestones in the development of Wicipedia Cymraeg, starting with Marc Haynes residence at the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol (the Welsh federal university of Wales) and ending with the latest WiR: Aaron Morris at Menter Môn and the National Eisteddfod. The talk foresees Wikipedia being nothing more than an empty shell, a bare platform and the content taken in as live feeds from content providers such as the National Library of Wales, Llen Natur (nature website), Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, dictionaries, archives, museums etc. Lastly he will name the person who originally imagined “a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge.”
