Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica
Just in case you don't know Encyclopeia Britannica have anounced that they are going to open their doors to user content. It will be limited to scholars and experts, who will be named, and have to provide a profile. How far this wil be open to abuse is unclear so far. There will be "a reward system and a rich online home for them to showcase and publish..."(acc. Britannica blog). Content will be separate from the main Britannica material. Guess this is a good thing, but how far this will affect Citizendium or Knol is hard to predict. Wikipedia will keep steaming on I suspect.
