Would You Like to "Wiki the Presidency?"

People for the American Way has launched, a wiki that "establish[es]
a single place for the public to both acquire
and share information about Executive Branch

The site, which employs the same technology as the
popular Wikipedia, allows the public to "post
material about Bush administration wrongdoing, edit
any material already posted, and create new topic
areas at will." Materials posted should consist of factual
claims that can be substantiated by credible
sources (defined on the site as those "either authored
by a recognized authority or published by a reputable
news source.")

Thanks to Professor Donna Arzt for the tip.
