Google Base (all your base are belong to us)

Wow, people are really talking about this alot out there. But yes, i did make that wikipedia entry and please add to it anyone who is out there who finds this interesting. I've been thinking alot about wikipedia. It seems to me like it could and will become the repository of all "generally accepted facts" about everything in the world- which is pretty amazing. What will the world look like when everything that anyone knows is available to anyone anywhere instantly? What will the world look like if google is able to index not only all the web pages in the world, but through a product like google base all the information about all the stuff in the world too? Google base (once it launches) and wikipedia right now both seem like good mediums in which art could be made. Anyone want to try? Now, just because wikipedia could change at any moment- i'm going to duplicate my wikipedia entry here:

Google Base

In Late October the existence of a not-yet-public product in development called "Google Base" is discovered at the address: base.google.com by Tony Ruscoe. Described in an official blog by google as "new way for content owners to submit their content to Google", some speculate that it may be a product to compete with craigslist or ebay, or may be the beginning of what Paul Ford predicted google would do in a 2002 essay about the Semantic Web. It was taken down soon thereafter but not before several people took screenshots. A great deal of interest and speculation followed in blogs, magazines and newspapers.

In the developed world, virtually every profession makes use of computers.
However, certain professional and academic disciplines have evolved that
specialize in techniques to construct, program, and use computers.
Terminology for different professional disciplines is still somewhat fluid and
new fields emerge from time to time
