Cuba launches Wikipedia clone "EcuRed," but needs a little help


As you may have heard, this week the government of Cuba launched a state-approved online encyclopedia, called EcuRed.

"Its philosophy is the accumulation and development of knowledge, with a democratizing, not profitable, objective, from a decolonizer point of view," reads a statement on the site.

There are already nearly 20,000 articles in the index—an impressive start. Perhaps next they'll mirror those 250,000 WikiLeaks cables (minus the ones about Cuba, of course).

But, look. There. I fixed it for you. You're welcome.
