  • Bibliotheca Anonoma - This wiki is a Semantic Wiki that ties together all the knowledge of this organization into a Semantic web. It differs from other wikis in the use of forms and tables to produce a metadata database that guides users (and robots) to the information they seek.Subjects simply must tie into the general theme of Internet Folklife: that is, it was made on or otherwise affected daily life on the internet at some point in time. We also often rehost abandoned or otherwise lost wiki content. Focus topics include Something Awful, 2channel, 4chan, and other imageboard/textboard communities.
