NupediaNupedia is an online encyclopedia project founded in March 2000 by Jimbo Wales and Larry Sanger. Its articles are licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License, and it features a peer review by experts. After an eighteen month gap from 12 October, 2001, Nupedia released two more articles on April 26, 2003, on source code and bacteria.
Periodically there has been talk on the Wikipedia mailing list about the possibility of transforming Nupedia into a stable distribution of selected Wikipedia content.
