An article in the April 23, 2009 Online Media Daily "Wikipedia Founder: How To Save The Newspaper Industry" should have stated that Jimmy Wales was the co-founder of Wikipedia with Larry Sanger. Wales said he began thinking about the site in 1996 and then formally launched Wikipedia in 2001. The article should have also attributed the claim that Wikipedia is the fourth-largest Internet business directly to Wales.
