is a project to promote tourist destinations with information compiled by wiki. This is a major area of interest, especially if tour packages can be barcoded in catalogues, or destinations assessed for various criteria: impact on environment, use of child or slave labour, etc. - killing the tourist trade is a great way to get the government to take heavy handed action against the offenders who are ruining these hard cash industries...

It uses mediawiki, for now, but it also uses the Creative Commons license, a parametric license of high quality, for contributions. This should be considered by the Consumerium Governance Organization as well, as the Creative Commons Board has a very well-designed process for adding new types of licenses and terms - such as the Consumerium Software License may need to be. The "by" attribution with "sa" share-alike version of the CC are similar to those of the GFDL although they are not compatible, and seem impossible to make so. Relicensing the R&D wiki under a CC license is probably possible under certain conditions, especially given the broad terms in our Consumerium:disclaimer.
