Which will be better?

The Wikipedia (via JWalk) is an online encyclopedia that anyone (you too) can edit or write for -- no application process required. Just click on over, find a topic, and start modifying. It's a good-quality resource, evidence that the open-source approach works for more than just computer programs.

NuPedia is a similar idea, but it is less of a free-for-all in that there is a peer review process. I wonder which encyclopedia will end up being better.
