BrownBook: Wiki Yellow Pages

I just discovered UK-based Brown Book, which is pursuing a Wiki-like approach to building a directory (with reviews). Yellowikis was the first in this category, though both Yahoo! and Google allow users to edit listings as well.

Brownbook

There are a range of “Web 2.0” directories in the UK, including TouchLocal and TrustedPlaces, among a few others. I would expect UK yellow pages publisher Yell to move more in this direction or to acquire one of these companies eventually.
