The Encyclopedia of Life

The Encyclopedia of Life is a web project undertaken by the global scientific community (among others) to catalog in one place all the species sof animals in the world. In my opinion, this sort of positive, purposeful, beneficial collaboration is just about the coolest thing ever and why the internet exists.

The intention of those behind this project is to open the Encyclopedia of Life to the public sometime in 2008 with a ten year goal for completion. Let’s watch this evolve!
