(Yes, that was sarcasm. A distributed Wikipedia
could be done, and it
could be done for less than 1.5 million. That's my belief and I'm
sticking with it. Just because something hasn't been done before
doesn't make it impossible.)
Then don't let those who say it can't be done stop you from doing it.
As I've said, it *will* happen. The forks *will* come, and one of
them *will* pick up on the idea. Why don't *I* do it now, today?
Well, I don't have anywhere *near* 1.5 million, for starters. I also
don't have those all important wikipedia domain names.
Show us the code.
If you're really interested in seeing this achieved, contact me off
list. This list isn't really the place to discuss the details,
especially as the management of the foundation isn't interested.
(although when you have solved the underlying
issues, there are folks
at major database companies who will likely want to pay you lots to
apply your solutions to their database products... and you'll lose
interest in this wiki stuff. :) )
I doubt it.
Do you have an architectural design concept specification for this
distributed wiki, including dataflow paths and consistency model?
What is your background in distributed computing programming and
architecture, and database architecture issues?
