Citizendium launched

Posted March 26th, 2007 by konrad

EN: The Citizentdium, a Wikipedia forked that was announced on the Wizard of the OS 4, is finally online. It is based on contributions of selected, known by name experts. This means the mechanism for generating high quality articles is quite close to the one of Scholarpedia (“the free peer reviewed encyclopedia written by scholars”). Not sure if they will attract enough manpower to really compete with Wikipedia.

    We’ve been talking about Citizendium over at Highbrid Nation. Personally I use Wikipedia a lot and I don’t see anything knocking it off its top spot. The features that make Citizendium better may just be the features that keep it from having the same sucess as Wikpedia. There can only be one. Who will it be?
