Goals

Information Sources

In order of priority:

  1. Wikia sites (there are tons!)
  2. Wikipedia
  3. wiki.c2.org
  4. Assorted third party wikis.
  5. [perhaps] personal wikis
  6. etc…

Fusing all of the Wikia sites into a single, cohesive wiki seems incredibly useful.

Feature Ideas

shared & enhanced pages
fuse pages that cover similar or related topics together into one view.
consensus

interoperable
