Knowledge is the only product which, when sold, remains with the seller. If you sell to me a widget, you have my money but you no longer have that widget, it's mine. If I sell to you some knowledge, I have your money and I still have my knowledge. It even grows in the process as each time you deliver, you learn something new. Because of these attributes, we can afford to (and it is often profitable!) to give knowledge away for free, like this wiki :) - Vladimir Dimitroff
