I'd like to announce a new mediawiki-based project called Wikicompany:

http://www.wikicompany.org (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikicompany)

The goal is to create a community built, worldwide, business directory,
licensed under the GNU FDL license (with some exceptions for images).

More can be read in the Wikicompany introduction page:

Currently I'm working to get all the Wikipedia company articles into
Wikicompany. Most of the European articles are now inserted.

There are already some articles on Wikicompany which aren't in WP, and
over time this will increase, as most companies in the world are not
really encyclopedia worthy. I hope there can be a healthy symbiosis between
the company articles on WP and those on Wikicompany.

Comments and remarks are welcome on the Wikicompany mailing list
(https://lists.wikicompany.org/listinfo/wikicompany-list) or on
on the Wiki (eg. at: http://wikicompany.org/wiki/Wikicompany:Ideas)

File downloads (including DB dumps) will be made available on:
