This new site differs from Wikipedia by inviting acknowledged experts in a range of subjects to review material contributed by the general public. "The vision of the Digital Universe is to essentially provide an ad-free alternative to the likes of AOL and Yahoo on the Internet," said Firmage. "Instead of building it through Web robots, we're building it through a web of experts at hundreds of institutions throughout the world.""
