This is the start page for the G20 Can Budget project, which will import the base $1B G20 budget, and allow anyone to examine and expand on the budget details using a semantic wiki. Among the features will be a data import of the original faxed budget overview, links to different entities and terms, and the ability to add and edit information, including discourse features to collect articles and comments with position on content such as definitions and issues, in the style of DiscourseDB.
Individuals can contribute by creating an account and adding or editing pages. You can create pages editable only by you under your own namespace (Your name/Page name), or download the complete data and site for your own uses. The final domain name is under consideration. This project is unfunded. Please monitor this page, join the mailing list (below) or send email to g20budget at zooid org to get involved.
