The GNE Project Files[edit]

In the early days of Wikipedia, several people were working on the GNU encyclopedia project based on Richard Stallman's essay The Free Universal Encyclopedia and Learning Resource. They used Wikipedia to develop some of their ideas. Stallman eventually recommended that people focus their efforts on Nupedia and Wikipedia, and so this project never got off the ground. These are the GNE Project's files:

Some GNE volunteers, including Tom Chance and Robert Scott, also began to develop a live system to experiment with the ideas being suggested on the mailing list. A half-working system is still online.
