Wales has plans for the future . His new projects include Wikibooks – free online textbooks for schools worldwide , an online dictionary called Wiktionary and an online library called Wikisource . Wales explains , “ We want to share knowledge in a million ways . We have the people to do it . We have the technology to do it . And we will do it . ”
