Quantum Wiki idea revived

My thesis supervisors and I tried something like that back in the day when wikis were obscure but it fell completely flat. Now that wikis are becoming mainstream, one can hope that this experiment (or this one) will pick up some steam!

Artur Ekert says,

"Few students attending one of the NATO workshop in
Crete and the Benasque meeting earlier this year decided to start a
quantum wiki - (see ). It is still in its beta
version and needs some good content before it is widely advertised.
Please encourage your colleagues to contribute in any possible way
(especially your post-docs and students). Or perhaps you have something
written which you would like to "wikinize" :). Apart from scientific
content it can serve as a repository of useful information about research projects in quantum information science, world funding,
roadmaps etc and may eventually save us lots of time when dealing with
admin matters. It does have a potential to evolve into a really useful
resource for everybody in the field. So do spread the word please :)
Cheers, Artur"
