Biographicon, a Y Combinator company, is a wiki for biographies. Probably the most commonly deleted articles on Wikipedia are biographies (usually submitted by the subject) of people the Wikipedians decided are not "notable" enough. Since there was obviously demand for a universal biography site, Biographicon decided to offer one. They are half way between Wikipedia and LinkedIn.
