Everipedia (ev-ree-pee-dee-a) is a crowd-sourced internet encyclopedia and knowledge base.  Unlike Wikipedia, Everipedia allows users to create pages about any person, organization, object, or idea that can be accurately cited. Contributors to the site get "IQ" points and celebrities can have Verified Accounts and add to their own pages or topics of expertise.  

 

Everipedia is based out of the Hilgard Apartments in Los Angeles, California

 

Everipedia's founders were influenced by Y Combinator cofounder Paul Graham's request for startups that can provide meaningful alternatives to Wikipedia.[✔] Graham wrote, "Deletionists rule Wikipedia. Ironically, they're constrained by print-era thinking. What harm does it do if an online reference has a long tail of articles that are only interesting to a few people, so long as everyone can still find whatever they're looking for? There is room to do to Wikipedia what Wikipedia did to Britannica." [64]

History

Everipedia was founded by Sam Kazemian and Theodor Forselius in 2014. Everipedia's name is a portmanteau​ of the English words "everything" and "encyclopedia" - also it sounds like "Wikipedia" which is Everipedia's main inspiration. 

 

In April 2015, Travis Moore joined the Everipedia team as an advisor and co-founder. In May 2015, Mahbod Moghadam, aka "Maboo" of Genius (website)​ infamy, joined Sam and Tedde in their efforts to bring Everipedia to fruition. In June 2015, Shree Dhamija joined the Everipedia team. He left in October 2015 to focus on schoolwork at UCLA. In Nov 2015, Kami Parsa, M.D. joined the Everipedia team. Dr. Parsa was brought in to help with the development of Medipedia, the medical informatics of Everipedia. 

 

In December 2015, Christian Deciga joined Everipedia as a cofounder and as their first iOS developer. Shortly after, George Beall joined oriented towards marketing, business development, and content strategy. He left in June 2016, to focus on schoolwork at the University of Pennsylvania.

 

Millie EfraimNavin VethanayagamKonstantine Nikka-Sher PitermanDave Liebowitz, Romi Ezzo​, and Angel Ordaz​ joined the founding team to focus on growth. 

 

In July 2017, Michael Emling​ joined as VP of Sales. 

Investors

Everipedia raised $130,000 on Crowdfunding​ platform Wefunder​ at a $22,000,000 valuation in 2016. [75]

Usage

The only requirement for making an Everipedia page is that all information on the page must be supported by links or media. Add links to other web pages or upload files, then cite them in the article.

 

New users don't have full editing privileges. Once users build their IQ scores and reputations, their powers increase.  For more suggestions on improving article and reference link quality - see Everipedia Guidelines - Helpful Suggestions

 

Everipedia is continuously growing via an expanding list of contributors, information bots, education-plus-news content, advanced software aggregation and integrated-to-source-link internet pages. From casual users to learned scholars, it represents concentrated, focused information, drawing from myriads of different web sources, yet easily and simultaneously - delivers erudite, understandable insights, stretching the breadth of human knowledge. Everipedia also explores new and sometimes overlooked yet meaningful niches of knowledge - both at and beyond preexisting boundaries and limits of what most knowledge projects cover such

as Wikipedia.

Social Media and Community

Unlike traditional encyclopedias, Everipedia maintains a robust presence in the social media landscape of the web, engaging with breaking news, novel wiki use-cases, sharing memes, and expanding awareness of the Everipedia mission. Everipedia maintains an extremely active and public Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/832060766909870/ and highly encourages all new contributors to join and introduce themselves there. 

Features

Link Search

When a user puts a URL in the search box, it tells them if it's listed on any Everipedia page. This is useful if one has somebody's Instagram and wants to find their Facebook

 

Discussion and voting

Users can comment and vote on the reference links on a page. Accurate and reliable sources should be upvoted and inaccurate and dubious sources should be downvoted. They can also simply discuss the page content in the discussion section. 

 

Structured data

Everipedia's pages are highly structured for meta data and are organized in a graph relational manner.[✔] A future API release will allow querying Everipedia content by property attributes.[✔] Users can use the Google Rich Data Testing Tool (https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool) to see the type of meta data stored in an Everipedia page.

Human knowledge is, along several important metrics, roughly doubling every year and accelerating. Reference Knowledge Growth.  Help Everipedia let others share in that knowledge, all while being part of the human knowledge-base expansion quest.  And don't forget to search on Everipedia.  Everipedia may already have information that can be used; but remember to cross reference back to Everipedia pages with an "@" internal link wherever possible.

 

If one can write about a topic, accurately, comprehensively and in an unbiased manner, they have also mastered that topic.  Users are to give their topics the same care, conscientious effort and consideration they would as for a term paper, thesis or research report.  Feel free to work online in teams, collaborate and compare notes, as appropriate.  Some users might even get some unexpected help, again, adding to their knowledge base and human progress in general.  As  Thomas Edison once stated, "Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration."  

 

 In September 2016, Everipedia got a Wikipedia page. On October 11, 2016, the page got deleted. In a statement claiming how it failed to meet their General Notability Guidelines, one of their users explained, "[...] The news refs are PR-blog interviews or Crunchbase-style database entries; no one has independently covered or referenced Everipedia itself. As funny as Everipedia is, this article is (at the very least) WP:TOOSOON."

Media Appearances

Sam Kazemian, Mahbod Moghadam and other members of the Everipedia staff appeared on an episode of the Break It Down Show with Jon and Pete.  On the show, Sam discusses the democratization of information on the internet. Mahbod discusses the intention to increase the level of diversity in the articles present when compared to the apparent white-centric mindset of Wikipedia.

 

In the News 

Dec 2016: Everipedia’s founders have a lofty goal for the online knowledge aggregator and learning machine: Create the best and biggest site of all time.  Two prime directives at Everipedia include: being neutral or unbiased and including citations.  On the history side of Everipedia, it began as a side project of Sam Kazemian and Tedde Forselius out of Sam’s dorm room in UCLA in December of 2014. It wasn’t until July of 2015 when Mahbod was on board that Everipedia received its seed funding round from Mucker Capital

    The article discusses the "infamy" of one of the site co-founders.  Does anyone have a dictionary around here?
