The topic of Wikipedia came up in a number of presentations yesterday. While scanning my news this morning, I noticed an interesting new development–actually a new site based on Wikipedia. Here’s from the site:
"Veropedia is a collaborative effort by a group of Wikipedians to collect the best of Wikipedia’s content, clean it up, vet it, and save it for all time. These articles are stable and cannot be edited, The result is a quality stable version that can be trusted by students, teachers, and anyone else who is looking for top-notch, reliable information."
It has a small subset of content at this time but is continually adding. The improvements are done over at Wikipedia with updates imported into Veropedia. If an article has already been "verofied" it will appear as a green link. If an article has not yet been "verofied," it will appear as a blue link, and direct you to the current Wikipedia version.
