Now, the big question is... did Jimbo authorize and approve of this use of his personality rights?
“The only thing that matters to him [now] is fame,” says a former associate. “I miss the old Jimmy Wales.”
As Wales’s profile grew, those close to him say he also started dressing in extravagant outfits such as a red satin Mao jacket (though he now wears all black because “everything matches”), took to referring to himself as the “benevolent dictator” of Wikipedia in internal e-mails and became prone to name-dropping. “I can’t speak to you right now; I have to go pour Nelson Mandela his orange juice,” one colleague remembers Wales saying on the phone.
