Am I the last to know about Citizendium? It was started by Larry Sanger, co-founder of Wikipedia, in an attempt to get away from the loonies masquerading as experts who kept tinkering with entries. Citizendium is still user-written but applies 'gentle expert oversight'. Unfortunately, it is, for the moment, very limited. Jeffrey Archer is not in there and neither is Amanda Marcotte, nor, amazingly is Paris Hilton. Perhaps this means it is the best encyclopaedia out there, but, for the moment, I have taken out a subscription to the online Britannica.
