Why the name WikiPendium?

Do you remember this great book called The Atari Compendium? Years ago, some people tried to publish an updated version with UDO (to make STguide and HTML documentation), but Scott D. Sanders, the original author, refused that they publish it freely. Now someone has published several years ago the HTML version of this book on the Internet. The site is still opened since around 2001.

As says Wikipedia, the term compendium is a common word that is used for "a short but comprehensive compilation of a body of knowledge". Isn't this word exactly what we are trying to do here? Furthermore, we are free to use it because it's a common name!

So here you know the story for that name! I hope this is the start of a long and productive story for the WikiPendium project!
