[Taxacom] Species Pages - where are the online descriptions?

Thanks for the prod Tony! We setup the three databases on www.tdwg.org for

1. Any biodiversity informatics-related projects our outcomes. We did this
because it seemed that a) there appeared to be many projects that many
people didn't know about. We thought that minimizing 'reinventing the wheel
and building on others contributions were a good idea and b) TDWG was an
obvious place to locate this information.

2. Biodiversity informatics-related networks and

3. Biodiversity informatics-related events.

Adding (even minimal) information to these databases is very welcomed and
hopefully useful to many in our large community.

Responding to Tony's point: If one wants lists and to know of projects,
I guess the TDWG site is fine. I have not listed anything I do with it
because they are not projects but by-products. If I want information I
use Google - and wish it did not also bring up rehashes of nomenclatural
information. Perhaps we could have a phrase that we put in the page if
it really presents information about a taxon rather than a name.
