What is an encyclosphere?

An encyclosphere (this word is our neologism) is a decentralized Internet network of encyclopedias. Think of how blogging works. Whole blog farms, individual blogs, and individual blog posts are organized in useful ways by the blogosphere and its defining technical standards, RSS and Atom, right? So also, we propose to organize collections of encyclopedias, individual encyclopedias, and individual encyclopedia articles in the encyclosphere, defined by brand new technical standards. There is more to it, but that is it in a nutshell. The Knowledge Standards Foundation, a non-profit, is busy organizing OSS code and studying how to design an encyclosphere.
