The Free Encyclopedia Project
Our idea for a free encyclopedia is described
in The Free Universal
Encyclopedia and Learning Resource.
Just as we were starting a project, GNUpedia, to develop a free
encyclopedia, the Nupedia encyclopedia project adopted
the GNU Free Documentation License
and thus became a free commercial project. So we decided to merge
GNUpedia project into Nupedia. Now,
the Wikipedia encyclopedia
project has adopted the philosophy of Nupedia and taken it even
further. We encourage you to visit and contribute to the site.
