A huge repository of Web Data – Wiki style

Imagine a site where anyone can enter data, edit previously entered data, and define new types of tables.   But why not take it further, Wikipedia style?  Ouseful has a few posts on collecting data that’s already out there, and mashing it up with pipes and Google Docs.

So data is already public.  But not accessible.  Want to make a semantic web?  Make the data easier to access.  Start by collecting it.

Collecting it is  a huge job.  Obviously get the entire Internet to help you by allowing anyone to edit the collected data.  And there will be audit trails (histories of changes), Wikipedia style.
