Jimbo Wales 'to advise Whitehall on transparency'

This isn't so dumb

I normally laugh at these consultants and Cameron but I'm actually quite open to this-I've seen him speak (at my old university) and he really is a darn engaging person who's come to wikipedia from a very strong set of values-OK, he may have made his money hosting porn, but he really appreciates the value of knowledge and information, and you can tell how he persuaded people to work with him to put wikipedia together (even if it didn't last forever in the case of Sanger...). I can really see him having an effect in making civil servants see a major part of their work as being making sure the public understands what they're doing.
