Welcome to the Citizendium Pilot Project

The Citizendium (sit-ih-ZEN-dee-um), a "citizens' compendium of everything," is an experimental new wiki project that combines public participation with expert guidance.

It began life as a "gradual fork" of Wikipedia. But it has taken on a life of its own and will, perhaps, become the flagship of a new set of responsibly-managed free knowledge projects. Because there will probably always be articles in the resource that have not been vouched for in any sense, and because the sheer size of the resource actually changes the nature of the beast, it is not an "encyclopedia."

It is something new.

Citizendium personnel are informally divided up into discipline workgroups. Workgroup's homepages are at Φ. The articles corresponding to workgroup names are good places to look for important articles to edit, and we want these articles themselves to be excellent as well.
