Help build Citizendium

Rex, Anthropology (and archaeology) on Citizendium, Savage Minds, March 26, 2007.  Excerpt:

As many of you may know by now, Citizendium is now live. The site aims to be like Wikipedia but with ‘quality control’—it uses a quasi-hierarchical role structure and asks its authors provide CVs and other proof of their expertise. So if you have been interested in writing open access encyclopedia articles about anthropology but have found the politicking of Wikipedia distracting, then Citizendium may be for you....

At the moment the anthropology offerings on Citizendium are pretty sparse —check out the entry on anthropology itself if you don’t believe me— and they could use some more help. So consider signing up and helping make our work as anthropologists more open to the public.
