[TIPS] - Citizendium to launch

Thanks to Michael P for alerting me to this one. Here's what it says about itself:

"The Citizendium (sit-ih-ZEN-dee-um), (http://www.citizendium.org) a "citizens' compendium of everything," is an experimental new wiki project. The project, started by a founder of Wikipedia, aims to improve on the Wikipedia model by adding "gentle expert oversight" and requiring contributors to use their real names. It has taken on a life of its own and will, perhaps, become the flagship of a new set of responsibly-managed free knowledge projects. We will avoid calling it an "encyclopedia" until the project's editors feel comfortable putting their reputations behind this description."

This should be interesting to watch as it evolves over the next year or two or three. This article in eschool News tells more about it and the plans in store for it.
