Wales said that the school was expensive for his family, but that "education was always a passion in my household ...
you know, the very traditional approach to knowledge and learning and establishing that as a base for a good life." Wales has described himself as having been addicted to the Internet from an early stage and he wrote computer code during his leisure time.
In two interviews with the Guardian in 2014, Wales elaborated on his role on Wikipedia.
In the first interview, he said that while he "has always rejected" the term "benevolent dictator", he does refer to himself as the "constitutional monarch".
In the second, he elaborated on his "constitutional monarch" designation, saying that, like the Queen, he has no real power.
Although he had never traveled outside North America prior to the site's founding, his participation in the Wikipedia project has seen him flying internationally on a near-constant basis as its public face.
Sanger commented that "having seen edits like this, it does seem that Jimmy is attempting to rewrite history.Despite involvement in other projects, Wales has denied intending to reduce his role within Wikipedia, telling The New York Times in 2008 that "Dialing down is not an option for me ...Not to be too dramatic about it, but, 'to create and distribute a free encyclopedia of the highest possible quality to every single person on the planet in their own language,' that's who I am. That's my life goal." In May 2010, the BBC reported that Wales had relinquished many of his technical privileges on Wikimedia Commons (a Wikipedia sister project that hosts much of its multimedia content) after criticism by the project's volunteer community over what they saw as Wales's hasty and undemocratic approach to deleting sexually explicit images he believed "appeal solely to prurient interests".Wales characterized this as the moment he realized that the Nupedia model was not going to work.In January 2001, Sanger was introduced to the concept of a wiki by extreme programming enthusiast Ben Kovitz after explaining to Kovitz the slow pace of growth Nupedia endured as a result of its onerous submission process.
