With Jimbo's blessings, Brion Vibber has now officially launched the
Wiktionary project:


Many thanks to him for setting this up!

Where "Wikipedia is not a dictionary", "Wiktionary is not an encyclopedia"
-- it focuses on brief definitions, etymology, usage notes etc. 

Everyone who has, in the past, called for a wiki dictionary now has the
opportunity to become a pioneer for this new project! Help create the rules and
policies for the first (well, probably not) collaborative, multi-language
dictionary in the world. Start the first flamewar or be the first banned user!
;-) Most importantly, by creating a user account *now*, you will get one of the
low user ID numbers you will be able to impress your friends with or sell on
eBay years from now. It's like Slashdot, only spelled correctly!

Please spam^H^H^H^Hinform your friends and family where appropriate.
