Wales speech at the Long Now Foundation: ( ogg | mp3 ). Runs the gamut. Points, off the top of my sleep-deprived head:

  • Wikipedia (and its volunteer network) is doing cool and interesting things in the third world.

  • Structural changes take a long time to happen, but that's good for stability.

  • Candidates for deletion should be routed to members of the relevant wikipedia projects.
Less Stephensonesque than Jason Scott's speech, of course, and therefore less exciting, but more believable.

In other news, Wikitruth is one of a relatively small number of anti-wikipedia (or criticising-wikipedia) websites that has a sense of humor. (Update. Ok, it's uneven.)
