In 2006, Wikia, Inc. was created from the minds of Angela Beesley and Jimmy Wales, the creator of the free online, open-source encyclopedia, Wikipedia. Jimmy and Angela realized they could use their MediaWiki technology to support the high demand of popular culture topics like video games, movies, books, comics, music, TV, and lifestyle topics including sports, food/drink, travel, and more. Reigning as its own business platform for collaborative media publishing ever since, Wikia has more than 200 employees worldwide and is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Cologne, Tokyo, and Poznan, Poland.
