The beanSTOCKd Project

Leave it to Harvs… by beanstockd

Okay, I know this isn’t entirely relevant but COME ON. It’s a freaking Encyclopedia of Life on planet Earth. Baller.

The Encyclopedia of Life is an ecosystem of websites that will give you information about every single species out of the 1.8 million on Earth. E.O. Wilson of Harvard University had the goal of creating a constantly evolving encyclopedia similar to Wikipedia and is a work in progress with $10 million in funding from the MacArthur Foundation and $2.5 million from the Sloan Foundation. The website will hopefully be live in 2008 and is a joint global effort by the world’s leading scientific institutions that will take about 10 years to complete pages for all 1.8 million species.
