Wikipedia branches out

One of the founders of Wikipedia, Larry Sanger, has announced a new citizen’s compendium called Citizendium. Citizendium will overcome some of the distortions of content which occur on wikipedia by requiring registration, and having a set of community rules which will be gently enforced by a team of editors.

Content will initially be drawn from wikipedia and the two will diverge based on their different approaches.
