Jason, just about the technicalities: I tried the main page with 2-3 topics and the result was "no such title". Categories I did not venture into, because to find the right wording/spelling requires familiarity in our lingo and I had in mind to educate the innocent(ignorant) by passers outside Brunoistic or Schmidthuberistic use of vocabulary (and myself also). Those 'blog=like' concentrates of one's positions on topics will be much better than the spread-and-cut remarks in reply-posts containing 6 - 3000 preliminary texts ea. While I find it useful to let the prerequisites run, it makes it difficult to concentrate on the issue on hand - way above. Or: vice versa. I think the use of this 'wiki' would reduce the redundancy and increase the reasonability of the list by knowing what we are talking about. (This last sentence refers to myself).
I think what you started is of a huge benefit to all of us.
