mind you, i don't know if you've ever considered the advantages of clicking on the encyclopedia of life link
Eric Idle shows us how easy it can be to sell an Encyclopedia of Life.
Grist is reporting that the (loosely) E.O. Wilson-conceived "Encylopedia of Life" is up and a-running, but a click on through to the other side and it looks as though they're having server trouble. Methinks you should explore the site anywho, as it may be the coolest thing going on the internets - like a Trekked-out, updated version of those National Geographic flashcards you got when you were six.
