Wikis can be stabilised. Or stable FAQs can be created by taking a
snapshot of a Wiki and performing some editorial work. Also wikis are
supposed to save the editing history - it should be possible to revert
vandalism. I'm quite a fan of wikis, even though I know they're not a
panacea. They can be spammed, but then so can email lists, and so far
the everything-list has been remarkably robust to being infected with
garbage. Hopefully, the same will be true of the wiki.

One thing I do suggest is that we link offsite to generally accepted
terms. I have done this with links to "Born rule", "Quantum Mechanics"
and so on to Wikipedia. Plato.stanford might be a better source for
philosophical terms.

Anyway, I'm prepared to upload relevant definitions of concepts based
on my book as a starting point. I expect corrections :)
