Need for a wiki computing glossary and wiki product/service directory

There is a wikipedia encyclopedia and even a wiktionary dictionary, but we desperately need a wiki computing glossary since not all computing terms belong in a normal dictionary, and not all of them deserve the kind of detailed articles found in an encyclopedia.
There are existing online computing glossaries (e.g., the Free Online Dictionary of Computing and the Webopedia), but none in wiki format so that "the community" can maintain the glossary without the difficulties of overloaded (or disinterested) gatekeepers.
We also need a wiki product and service directory since the existing "directories" (e.g., Yahoo, the Open Directory Project, and the Google directory) are also overly constrained by overloaded or disinterested (or greedy) gatekeepers.
