The Citizendium Project

The Citizendium Project

The Citizendium (sit-ih-ZEN-dee-um), a "citizens' compendium of everything," will be an experimental new wiki project that combines public participation with gentle expert guidance. It will begin life as a "progressive fork" of Wikipedia. But they expect it to take on a life of its own and, perhaps, to become the flagship of a new set of responsibly-managed free knowledge projects. They will avoid calling it an "encyclopedia," because there will probably always be articles in the resource that have not been vouched for in any sense. They believe a fork is necessary, and justified, both to allow regular people a place to work under the direction of experts, and in which personal accountability--including the use of real names--is expected. In short, they want to create a responsible community and a good global citizen. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracerâ„¢ Information Blog.
