Wikia, the for-profit company set up in 2004 by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has announced that Wikia will be launching a free application hosting service through Openserving. Wikia is an advertising-supported platform for developing and hosting community-based wikis. Wikia enables groups to share information, news, stories, media and opinions that fall outside the scope of an encyclopedia. Through Openserving, the intent is to extend its open source offering to include hosting services and bandwidth. It remains to be seen how this will be monetized since users are to keep the advertising revenues generated by their sites.
