Pronunciation[edit]

The pronunciation of his name was changed from "like kale" to "like Kali". No evidence was given either way, so we should hash it out here before restoring the pronunciation information. Furtermore, "like Kali" is not very helpful as people typically don't know how to pronounce names of Hindi goddesses. AxelBoldt 13:50, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

I answered his phone for a number of years. Kahle has always been "like kale". I'm not aware that he has suddenly changed the way he pronounces his name--though I have heard it mispronounced plenty of times by others.--Kdragoo 22:21, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Sorry for my misinformation. I heard it incorrectly pronouced at Wikimania 2006, and inserted original research. Will be more careful. What an amazing discovery to know more about him, though. BusterD 00:44, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

He is my brother-in-law. It is not spinach, it is kale. .--pjc Feb 9 2007

changed "rhymes with" to "pronounced" Sherurcij (Speaker for the Dead) 01:42, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
All this is original research in Wikipedia terms. -- Henriok (talk) 11:19, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
How hard is it to google 'Kahle' and 'pronounced?' Not much more difficult than complaining about OR. Here's one reliable cite: http://www.nytimes.com/2001/10/29/technology/ebusiness/29NECO.html May I suggest that, next time, you consider doing the search instead of the complaint?

Internet Bookmobile[edit]

I've heard someone in 2004 mention "Brewster Kahle's Internet Bookmobile". Is this something that needs to go in this article, or was that a typo that should have been Eric Eldred's Internet Bookmobile ? --68.0.124.33 (talk) 23:38, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes. Two different van versions sat outside the old office building. 143.232.210.45 (talk) 21:38, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

"the founder of...Thinking Machines"?[edit]

The last sentence of the intro currently suggests that Kahle was "the founder" of Thinking Machines, but the sources I can find all say something like "helped start" or "joined", or that he developed WAIS while there and later co-founded WAIS Inc. This sentence needs re-wording, but I can't quite tell whether he should be referred to as a co-founder or early employee of Thinking Machines. Thoughts? --Joel7687 (talk) 05:39, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
