Hey there everyone:
I've been contributing to an online project that I think some of you may
be interested in--and since this group hasn't done a whole lot of
talking recently--I figured this email might get things going.
Wikipedia has been contended as a valid reference when doing research
because anyone can edit the site. The problem with wikipedia is the
lack of oversight. Larry Sanger, one of the founders of wikipedia, has
decided to fix the problem. He's generated a new wiki called
citizendium and needs people to start producing, reviewing, and editing
the articles that appear on the new site.
Professors and professionals act as reviewers to verify the validity of
the articles that get contributed. Since this yahoo group has several
professors and professionals I figured it's worth letting you know that
the url is: http://en.citizendi um.org/wiki/ Main_Page and it only
takes a minute to request a logon and begin contributing.
Well, I hope some of you are interested in helping.
