 +These pages have collected a lot of dustMy attention ​is elsewhere now, and my hope for building a world that works for everyone is in a much worse state than it was 7 years agoIf this is going to continueit can't be completely dependent on meI have an idea for how I'd like to structure it--as ​**library** of CC-licensed material found to be most helpful--that which most effectively furthers the goal of building a world that works for everyone--with many contributors and a team of curators.
  
 +Building such a library is something we know how to do. It's just a lot of work. Asking people to write essays or parts of books, to improve knowledge that's out of date or wrong, to provide citations and evidence where needed, and then collecting these media and selecting the *best* among the good.
 +
 +I started out with the intent of writing the whole library myself. Not that I realized it, but that's what you see here: one guy trying to write a library that covers all the most important parts of human knowledge as it relates to living a good life. **I'm gonna go ahead and say that's not worth attempting.**
