This is a perennial thread on wikien-l. There's basically no way at
this stage for someone to be a better Wikipedia than Wikipedia. So
anyone else wanting to do a wiki of educational information has to
either (a) vary from Wikipedia in coverage (e.g., be strongly
specialised) (b) vary from Wikipedia in rules (e.g., not neutral, or
allow original research) or (c) have a small bunch of people who want
to do a general neutral encyclopedia that isn't Wikipedia and who will
happily persist because they want to (e.g., Knowino, Citizendium).
(Any cases I've missed there?)

- d.
