Practical Reference Sources:

Encyclopedia of Earth
An electronic reference about the Earth, its natural environments, and their interaction with society. The scope of the Encyclopedia of Earth is the environment of the Earth broadly defined, with particular emphasis on the interaction between society and the natural spheres of the Earth.

Qwiki is a quantum physics wiki devoted to the collective creation of technical content for practicing scientists. Please sign up, browse around the site, click on the edit links, and contribute something! The site is nominally centered around quantum physics including -- but not limited to -- quantum optics, quantum metrology, quantum control, quantum information, and quantum computation. Essentially, Qwiki is designed for people who post content to the Arxiv and quant-ph. If you are new to the increasingly popular wiki way, you may want to visit Wikipedia to see a more general effort in action.
