Ping me if you want one.... we're launched. :-)

I'm going to be letting people in slowly over the next few days and we are aiming for a January 7th public launch. We want to run over the system with help from people to complain about what is broken...

Best way to ask is by email, but please don't be offended if I don't answer right away. I am expecting a bit of a flood here.


This is the "Wikipedia-model" search project. Watch the press eat it up, even if now it's only just slightly condensed from vaporware.
