Abstract

Since the beginning of recorded history, scientists, artists, and philosophers who have thought outside the mainstream have been shut out from being able to publish their works in a formalized manner. With today's internet and new community-edited sites, this has all changed. The world-wide NeWiki project is the first community-edited encyclopedia for new theories and ideas for people who are seriously working outside the mainstream but cannot publish in a formal way. NeWiki invites those who are on the cutting edge of physics, astronomy, and any other discipline to publish their works in encyclopedia form. NeWiki is a single reference of new works from everyone around the world that anyone can reference. A companion website "Science Watchdogs" provides a more layman's approach to critical scientific thinking and includes critiques of current science news, reviews of books and media works, and a radio or "podcast" internet show interviewing people on the cutting edge of science.
