A Wiki for Lesser-Known Individuals

Biographicon has some potential for genealogists wishing to write biographies of their ancestors which are documented and can be shared with others who may also edit the articles. Sources can (and SHOULD) be included. I'm always a little hesitant to share information on living persons because of the problems in this day and age with identity theft and because of privacy concerns. However, I can see some value in using this resource to collaborate with others in writing a biography of a shared ancestor.
