<nettime> unbiased enyclopedia?

Hi, this is a recent-comer to nettime
I read  with interest the message sent by Peter Lunenfeld about the
Nupedia-encyclopedia project.

However, i was wondering if everybody believes in the possibility of
"unbiased" contributions?

Somehow i feel that the idea for an encyclopedia might be an
Enlightenment concept, and the web should allow for a more plural, less
hierarchical approach, without so many editors, staff, supervisors,
phd's and so on,
a new kind of rizhomatic knowledge-archive.
