David Ferriero is the Archivist of the United States, the chief official overseeing the operation of the National Archives and Records Administration. He recently spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the Wikimania 2012 Conference here in Washington. (Wikipedia is a division of the Wikimedia Foundation.) Over 1400 people from 87 countries came together to talk, hack, and share their expertise and experiences at the week-long event.
Ferriero is obviously a big fan of Wikipedia. At one point he said, "If Wikipedia is good enough for the Archivist of the United States, maybe it should be good enough for you."
