    no worries... didn't take it as criticism.

    It's all an experiment... we'll see how it goes.

    Maybe the aim should be to produce a series of cross-linked pages in the style of wikipedia.

    Skeptikipedia.
    Seriously, that project successfully links a lot of information, much of which is accumulated from anonymous sources. I think many people would prefer to contribute to this anonymously, but of course, unlike wikipedia, contributors would have to be given permission by you.

    The (above) menu could link directly into those pages.

    I could even imagine a role for sceptical contributors, but they would have to make a serious case (including setting out some sort of coherent world view) - not just rely on rhetoric. In any case, if something inappropriate was added, it could always be removed.

    I wonder if the software used by wiki is publicly available.

    thx. I think this is a few years old. and I don't think this could be easily re-purposed for Skeptiko.

    think along the lines of research that needs some explain'n

    David, the reason why scientists avoid "the hard problem of consciousness" is because we are still too far away from understanding it. In the same way that we don´t know for certain how the "quantum collapse" occurs. Neuroscientists are happy finding more and more connections inside the brain, which they can prove with the traditional methods.
