To rip the basic quick definitions of a particular company from CAPS into Fool wiki without doing each one manually.

I don't mind doing data entry , but it does seem a bit inefficient to have all that wonderful information (company descriptions e.g.) in CAPS and have to retype it manually into the wiki.

If this is possible ( I fully admit I am no programmer so I can't truly speak to the feasibility of such an action) then I think it could quickly provide a nice skeleton for the wiki and allow us to focus more on the stuff people will really want the wiki for, specific tidbits on a company, terminology, people, investing techniques etc etc.

Just a thought.

keep up the good work, guys

this project I think has a lot of potential.
Could be a great killer.
I know I certainly wouldn't mind having one less site to check for information. :-)
