Comments: On "A Personal Appeal From Wikipedia [*CO*]Founder Jimmy Wales"

The money factor that often tempts those heading the widely publicized not-for-profit "businesses" is a pretty incredible Idiom. Whenever you increase financial incentive you heavily reduce personal drive to succeed at your best (that was a thought from another writer I just can't find them at the moment) Great blog though - I have read your original articles and you really hit excellent points that unfortunately will go unacknowledged by a vast majority of those lacking this information.

we have to consider...that by upping financial incentives, we diminish a person's internal incentives to give of his best".
