Google TechTalks April 28, 2006 Brion Vibber Brion Vibber has worked on MediaWiki and Wikipedia's servers for four years, watching over its frightening growth from thousands to millions of pages, from dozens to thousands of hits per second. ABSTRACT Over four years, MediaWiki has evolved from a quick hack to run a little-known encyclopedia web site to the monster engine behind a heavily-used public site, while maintaining the simplicity needed for an entry-level intranet wiki.
