Breaking news: Wikipedia founder plans rival

"One of the founders of Wikipedia is days away from launching a rival to the collaborative internet encyclopaedia, in an attempt to bring a more orderly approach to organising knowledge online."

The latest venture from Larry Sanger, who helped create Wikipedia in 2001, is intended to bring more order to this creative chaos by drawing on traditional measures of authority.

Though still open to submissions from anyone, the power to authorise articles will be given to editors who can prove their expertise, as well as a group of volunteer “constables”, charged with keeping the peace between warring interests.


FunTrivia beat you by 7 years, Mr. Sanger.

Interesting idea, I wonder where he got it from. Editors and 'constables', whatever next.
