Created by users like you, Wikipedia.com has subsumed the role long played by encyclopedias, those heavy sets of books both authored and vetted by experts. These days, countless school essays, media reports, and even books are based on details culled from Wikipedia. In 150 Stanley Hall on the UC Berkeley campus, presented by the university’s Center for New Media, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales delivers the UC Berkeley Regents’ Lecture, titled “Welcome to the New World.” 7:30 p.m., free.
