Sam Hamidi-Kazemian (born February 12, 1993) is an Iranian-American software programmer. He is the co-founder and president of Everipedia, a for-profit, wiki-based online encyclopedia. He founded Everipedia with Theodor Forselius in December 2014.
Starting as a small project in Kazemian's dormitory room at UCLA, Sam Kazemian founded Everipedia with Theodor Forselius in December 2014. Kazemian and Forselius constructed the first MVP for Everipedia while Kazemian was still at UCLA.
In 2017, Kazemian told Boing Boing that "Wikia, like Wikipedia, uses really old software that was built in 2001. Meanwhile there are all these new, modern crowd-knowledge sites like Rap Genius, Quora and StackOverflow, but nobody ever tried to attack the original beast - a wiki of everything - with the new, modern tools. That is what Everipedia aims to do."
