I think  you may be thinking about it from a more WIkipedia-centric
view. I think anyone can start a new article. You're only the
"editor-in-chief" of *your* insomnia article, but I can start my own
easily enough.

This is why I don't see how this is better than normal web hosting,
except for google of course, which will get more ad revenue... :)
