Is it fair to say that Jimbo possibly really believes in Wikipedia's "mission"? Supposedly I heard that Wikipedia could rake in upwards of 500 million if it started running ads, so what motives would he have not to make it commercial.
Well, first of all, it's not Jimbo's decision. He's merely one member of a board of nine. Secondly, what motives would he have *to* make the WMF commercial? A commercially successful WMF would only compete with the corporation which Jimbo has an actual financial interest in, Wikia.

As Seth Finkelstein points out, here
, that he is paid more for one buzzword session that the Chief Technical Officer is paid for a whole years work.
I have a feeling that's no longer accurate
