Wikipedia Fact Sheet

Rationale of this mind map (August 6, 2008) I'm writing on an article about modes of collaborative knowledge production in internet encyclopedias. This mind map is my first try using MindMeister for organizing my ideas about the structure of the investigation for each internet encyclopedia. At the moment I am looking into the following projects (alphabetically sorted) Austria Forum (AF) Citizendium (CZ) Digital Universe (DU) Encyclopedia Britannica (EB) Encyclopedia of Life (EoL) Scholarpedia (SP) Wikinfo (WI) Wikipedia (WP)
