                          <llywrch at agora.rdrop.com>

      In this presentation, Geoff will present an introduction to 
      perhaps the most exciting project at this time on the Internet: 
      an encyclopedia created by a community. While a number of parts 
      of Wikipedia will be covered, Geoff will devote most of his 
      presentation to the part he is most familiar with: the 
      issues of community-created content.
