The Nupedia project is very proud of its carefully-developed peer-review system, but it has become clear to many Nupedians that it poses so many roadblocks to progress, that some change is necessary if Nupedia is to become useful anytime soon--some change, but without sacrificing quality. 2001 Wikipedia history Meta: Wikipedia Anti-rules Warning: You are not logged in.

A Wiki is an un-ordered and un-typed collection of pages The content of individual pages is also un-ordered and un-typed Tentative links in a wiki are not "broken" and pages with no links to them are not "orphaned". A Wiki operates in terms of multiples A Wiki is fast to operate. No existing information is inaccessible: A Wiki automatically builds several kinds of systems that allow navigation among its pages A Wiki is a "flat" information space, rather than the hierarchical spaces represented by file systems or databases.
