Another attempt to create Britannica

from eSchoolNews

A new internet research tool called Digital Universe aspires to be a more authoritative version of Wikipedia. If successful, it could provide scholars and students with one more option for finding accurate, reliable information online.

So, how are they going to do it, I wonder.
Instead of relying on anonymous volunteers [like Wikipedia], Digital Universe will pay experts, mostly academics, to write encyclopaedia articles and to round up outside video, audio, online chats, and other resources.

Oh, another attempt in reinventing a circle wheel. Is that just Britannica or similar encyclopaedia?
