Veropedia: Is It a Better Wikipedia, or a Worse Wikipedia?

Posted by grizzlymedia on December 21, 2007

Veropedia

The Wikipedia people have come up with a new online encyclopedia called Veropedia which they believe is a significant upgrade from Wikipedia. Only Wikipedia contributors who have proven themselves as providers of quality content are allowed to submit to Veropedia. The articles must meet stricter criteria and will be verified by experts and academics. There are some disadvantages: there is still advertising, most of the articles are quite brief, and coverage of many topics is not yet available. Veropedia has a long way to go, but at least it appears to be a step in the right direction.
