Sanger has made his first post to the Citizendium list:


Select quotes and a bit of commentary:

"I have a suggestion from someone very high up in the Creative Commons
organization that we should dual-license (CC and GFDL), which I simply
hadn't thought of.  I'm inclined to think it's a good idea."

I'd like to know how that would be compatible with working from
Wikipedia content.

"Speaking of naysayers, sure there have been a few on the blogosphere,
but what was especially striking to me is that Wikimedia's lawyer and
chief engineer both have said nothing but encouraging things to us.
How wonderfully refreshing of them!  And huge numbers of people on
Slashdot and elsewhere have come out saying that this is a good idea,
and that we have every right to do it."

Well, of course! That's what the "free content" bit is for, and I'm
interested in seeing how well this one works. I'd actually like to see
more projects coming from people who want to differ on some
fundamental point; Wikinfo is perhaps the best go at this so far.

"Personally, "Citizendium" rolls right off my tongue."

OK, that part I find hard to believe. :-)
