Ran across this while doing some research. It's a Wiki at York University that summarizes research topics in Information Systems/Science. It's a pretty good germ of an idea because it's a bit of a step up from the Wikipedia for people actually pursuing research in these areas, serving as a more useful starting point because of all the citations.

According to the US Census Bureau almost 75% of those who live below the "poverty line" own a car (31% own 2+), 43% have a 3-bedroom house, 97% own a color TV, 78% have VCR or DVD, 62% have cable or sat TV, 89% have microwave, and over half have a stereo. 89% have "enough to eat", 80% have A/C, only 6% are overcrowded, and avg child dietary consumption is on par with children of middle an upper income parents. Wouldn't it be nice to know if we have any POOR people in this country?

Isn't the whole idea of Wikipedia to get intellectuals in the field to write the articles to the highest level and therefore this should just be added to Wikipedia in the first place to make it easily available rather than placing it on a separate website seemingly for the sake of provenance.

The IS Theory wiki is now hosted by BYU at http://istheory.byu.edu/wiki/Main_Page. There is a link on the original page to the new Wiki, but I figured a direct link from this thread would be handy.

Yep, its up, I just checked it. But it does seem to be very intermittent. They do have some problems.
