Mission statement

To organize everything

To organize the world's information and make it more useful to people who want to use it

(Suspiciously similar to Google's mission statement, I know... but I think I (we) can do a much better job of organizing information (although on a much smaller scale) than Google can.)

To spread the truth, and counteract the spread of misinformation

The truth is infinitely more important than the status quo
Getting the truth out to as many as will listen (quick before I'm labeled a dissenter and my voice is squelched!).

Politically correctness, I detest you ... (if you get in the way of truth)!

Truthfulness, honesty, openness, transparency ... those are some of the core values I believe in.

Did you know that most hackers are good people, not malicious villains as they are often portrayed to be?

Did you know that the free software movement is as much about the freedom to modify and inspect software as it is about it not costing money?

Questions are worth asking

Why Not Ask Why? Why can't...?, Why is...?, Why does...?, How does...work?, Since when...?, Who...?, Is it really true...?, Can...?

Question what is. Ask yourself why it is. Research things for yourself. Ask questions. Be inquisitive. Freely inquire. Seek the truth.

Ask dumb questions! You'll be the less stupid for asking!
These are the "pillars" of WhyNotWiki, the working manifesto, if you will, for why it exists.
