I just went and checked out his Twitter. Odd stuff. In between trading in the Hyundai and what movie he's going to see he's commenting on some article about a reporter's boobs around the time his baby is supposed to be born, and then he jets off to Saudi Arabia.

Well, that's just loading up on boob material like a camel, for a trip to the desert where there isn't any. rolleyes.gif

This would have been improved with links to the actual tweets. Especially the boobs one.

Too much work, but I'll try. https://twitter.com/#!/jimmy_wales

Feb 19, 2011 - Guardian article - "We're pacing the floors" - second child is late arriving.

Feb 20, 2011 - Jimbo tweets link to this article (re:boobs): http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/20...-michael-winner

Feb 22 - packing for trip to Saudi Arabia, giving speech the next day

Feb 23 - in Saudi Arabia

Feb 24 - Back in London

Feb 27 - "quick trip to Florida"

Mar 8 - To Iowa from Florida

Mar 10 - Newark

Mar 12 - Trading in six year old Hyundai

Mar 13 - Florida to London

Unless quoted, I'm summarizing. Linking to the actual tweets is way to much work for me.

Techgoss is picking up the story now, too. (Not entirely accurately, either. Maybe Jimbo will sue them.)

It is interesting to note how people seem to get intensely interested in Jimmy Wales' net worth right about the time the WMF starts begging for money every year.

Relatively dramatic spikes have also appeared in page views of Examiner.com's article about Jimmy Wales' net worth.

True. Same thing happens at another site I know about that I won't mention for fear of being accused of spamming yet again.
