Citizendium-or how to think backwards

David Parry bio photo By David Parry

TechCrunch has an article about Citizendium a project by Larry Sanger, one of the founders of the now defunct Nupedia (harbinger to Wikipedia). Sanger apparently wants to make a better Wikipedia, or in his version a more civilized Wikipedia. Strikes me that Sanger has a real loser of an idea on his hands here. The author of the TechCrunch article, Marshall Kilpatrick is appropriately skeptical. Although he did change the original article which called the project “absurd.”
