Digital Universe to Launch Soon

Daniel Terdiman of CNET News reports that the founders of Digital Universe say they’re creating a unique online information resource that combines Web-based collaboration and scientific review.

“It will be the first Web-based information resource that combines the trustworthiness and authority of scientific review and governance with the power of Web-based collaboration, all enabled by a state-of-the-art technology platform,” wrote three Ph.D.s, Cutler Cleveland, Jim Lester and Peter Saundry, the chair and vice chairs, respectively, of the project’s Environmental Information Coalition.

“As such, the (Digital Universe),” they wrote in an open letter, “will be a direct conduit of objective information from scientists and educators to decision makers and civil society at large.”

“In the Digital Universe, a Ph.D. matters, and in the Wikipedia universe, a Ph.D. does not matter” according to Joe Firmage, Digital Universe co-founder.

We wish you the best, Digital Universe and Wikipedia collaborators, in using digital technology to overcome ignorance wherever it exists.
