it would be great to collab with the ldp.
I think an encyclopedia would be too much. a jargon file could be cool,
but there are already some of those...maybe an 'open glossary'? we could
certainly contribute a lot to that already. it would be interesting to
delineate explanations based on context and level of understanding but
this might be too complex
