Jimmy Donal Wales, ou simplesmente Jimmy Wales, também apelidado de Jimbo Wales, é um empresário americano da Internet, mais conhecido pelo público como cofundador, em 2001, do projeto livre Wikipédia. Atualmente, ele é membro do conselho de administradores da Fundação Wikimedia e é um dos fundadores da Wikia, uma propriedade privada de serviço livre de hospedagem de sites criado em 2004.

Juntamente com Larry Sanger, Wales ajudou a popularizar a tendência do desenvolvimento da web que visa facilitar a criatividade, a educação e o conhecimento humano de acesso livre, por meio da colaboração compartilhada entre usuários. Jimmy criou a Wikipédia inspirado pela teoria da Ordem Espontânea, do economista e filósofo Friedrich Hayek , segundo a qual o conhecimento se encontra disperso pela sociedade. Com o produto de seu trabalho com a Wikipédia, que se tornou a maior enciclopédia do mundo, a revista Time listou Wales como uma das pessoas mais influentes do mundo em 2009.

Em 2009, Wales ficou em terceiro lugar na lista Agenda Setters 2009, onde o site Silicon.com seleciona os 50 indivíduos mais influentes do mundo tecnológico. Neste mesmo ano recebeu uma premiação da Fundação Nokia por suas contribuições para a evolução da World Wide Web como uma plataforma participativa e verdadeiramente democrática.

A 9 de maio de 2010, no decurso da polémica gerada pela sua intervenção no projecto Commons sobre remoção de imagens de caráter pornográfico, Jimmy Wales removeu os privilégios executivos do seu estatuto de fundador da Wikipédia, conservando os relativos à visualização de edições, de modo a que a discussão sobre o seu estatuto não interferisse no debate em curso sobre o conteúdo editorial.

Em 2 de fevereiro de 2016 recebeu o título de Doutor Honoris Causa da Université catholique de Louvain .

„If people could treat others as though they were speaking face to face, that would be huge.“

—  Jimmy Wales
Context: There’s plenty of rude stuff online. People say things online that they would be ashamed to say face to face. If people could treat others as though they were speaking face to face, that would be huge. As quoted in "The Encyclopedist’s Lair" in The New York Times (19 November 2007)

„When someone just writes 'f**k, f**k, f**k', we just fix it, laugh and move on.“

—  Jimmy Wales
Context: When someone just writes 'f**k, f**k, f**k', we just fix it, laugh and move on. But the difficult social issues are the borderline cases — people who do some good work, but who are also a pain in the neck. As quoted in "Who knows?", The Guardian (26 October 2004)

„The real struggle is not between the right and the left — that's where most people assume — but it's between the party of the thoughtful and the party of the jerks. And no side of the political spectrum has a monopoly on either of those qualities.“

—  Jimmy Wales
Context: Most people understand the need for neutrality. The real struggle is not between the right and the left — that's where most people assume — but it's between the party of the thoughtful and the party of the jerks. And no side of the political spectrum has a monopoly on either of those qualities. "How a ragtag band created Wikipedia" http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/37 - TED Talk (July 2005); this has sometimes appeared paraphrased as "The real struggle is not between the right and the left but between the party of the thoughtful and the party of the jerks."

„Hayek's work on price theory is central to my own thinking about how to manage the Wikipedia project. … [O]ne can't understand my ideas about Wikipedia without understanding Hayek.“

„We are a passionate community of volunteers who are trying to create a free encyclopedia for every single person on the planet.“

—  Jimmy Wales
Context: We are a passionate community of volunteers who are trying to create a free encyclopedia for every single person on the planet. So we don't often think in terms of competition. We are going to do what we do and we hope Google does wonderful things as well. … If we were approaching this as a business we would think always: Oh, how can we position ourselves on the market... We just don't do any of that stuff. Wikimania 2008 Alexandria, press conference, 0'20 (August 2008), asked about Google Knol
