Is it an online encyclopedia? Is it a Wiki? Is it both? This is a pretty interesting way to blend both.

1911 Encyclopedia

So they get volunteers to correct scans of the 1911 EB, which is in the Public Domain (which is how they got it), and then forbid the corrected scan's reuse. Cute. Especially when both Project Gutenberg and WikiMedia have available and/or are working on it, under much more sensible licenses.

huh. I didn't look that far into it. Guess that is a tad hypocritical, eh? I just thought it was a nice mix of both user-edited stuff and a site-able source (unlike WikiPedia, which is not in most cases (ie, papers, etc)).
