:''"My own view of the Metaweb is pretty straightforward: I don't think that the Internet, as it currently exists, does a very good job of explaining things to people. It is great for selling stuff, distributing news and dirty pictures, and a few other things. But when you need to get a good explanation of something, whether it is a scientific principle, a bit of gardening advice, or how to change a tire, you have to sift through a vast number of pages to find the one that gives you the explanation that is right for you. Generally this is not a problem with the explanations themselves. On the contrary, it seems as though a lot of people like to explain things on the Internet, and some of them are quite good at it. The problem lies in how these explanations are organized." ''

Metaweb cooperates with other [[GFDL text corpus]] services, but has a specific focus on Neal Stephenson's ideas. Therefore some concepts like the [[faction]] will often have other names, like the [[phyle]] which is named for a faction-like concept in Stephenson's work. Such differences are noted as [[Metaweb: Stephensonia]].
