The fine communists over at marxists.org have approached me about the
possibilities of sharing content. They have a lot of content that's
under the GNU FDL, and they've expressed an interest in putting it
into the wikipedia.
I was brutally honest with them about my own personal opinion of
Marxism, which is quite low, and they were more pleasant to me in
return than I deserved. I recommended that they subscribe to this
list to chat about how best to put their stuff into the wikipedia.
I recommended that they might want to add just a few articles a day
for as long as it would take, rather than dumping everything in at
once. This would give people a better chance to respond.
They appear to be interested in non-bias, and to understand that
people would want to make modifications in order to make things
satisfactory to a wide audience. They appear to have a genuine
interest in contributing solid knowledge.
I'm just saying this now to invite everyone to go take a look at
their site, so that we can have intelligent comments for them.
