Here are my 5 cents to this.
First about the spelling:
The release version is named "picoLisp". So i consider this the correct spelling coming from Alex directly.
picolisp.org also uses various types of spellings.

2nd about the wiki people:
gtf out of our way.

Wikipedia was intended to be a open knowledge basis. You can look up any big company name there and there are even tons of refernce links into those companys. The simple fact of the GPL License of picoLisp counts against the commercial argument they made.

So its all there and you can learn it , understand it (if !) and use it as the GPL says.

I my opinion, if wiki people keep acting like that , then picoLisp doesnt need em anyway. There are tons of other ways to populate picoLisp.

 Cheer up, Alex!

 Without some of your articles being mentioned on Lambda the Ultimate back
 in 2007, I would probably not have heard of PicoLisp. I'm glad I got to
 know it. In my opinion PicoLisp is a shining gem, and by studying it one
 can learn a lot about different and clever ways to do programming.

 I now took a look at this: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picolisp>
 Two things made me unsure if this was the same Lisp: It was "originally
 developed on the Apple Macintosh". Wow! ;-) And then the spelling:
 "PicoLisp", no space. It used to be "Pico Lisp", but you've obviously
 changed it. (I just wish it wasn't "Picolisp", lowercase "l".) Let's try
 to make that article stick! If we succeed, I'll make another try at
 donating some money to Wikipedia.

 Keep up the good work! ;-)
