1600+ pages of almost the whole truth about all of us: The Russian PLMpedia

The Russian Web Encyclopedia PLMpedia.ru was founded by LEDAS during the preparation of the forum isicad-2008 as the online version of the vocabulary section of the monograph "The Encyclopedia of PLM» - the book which gradually became a rarity. To give you an idea about this web site, I will show some screenshots to begin with a front page whose some components randomly change from time to time (click to enlarge all pictures):
Over the past four years, PLMpedia became well ahead of its printed version, now in contains more than 1,600 articles (all in Russian) on engineering software​​ divided into more than thirty subject categories. Very probably, one of the most valuable sections is "Industry Terms and Concepts", a fragment of which is shown in this figure:

Now, a fragment from one of the largest categories "Vendors and their products":
In addition to the descriptions of products, technologies, services, and terminology, most of the articles contain references to the vendor websites. Here is a sample article "3D Geometric Kernel" relating to the "Industry Terms and Concepts" (the section which was substantially enriched thanks to the information kindly provided by CIMdata):
Note that at the end of encyclopedia articles there usually are links to relevant fresh publications at isicad.ru. Such links can also be found in other sections, for example, in the sections that describe companies (here - ASCON):

Obviously one of the largest section is about products (note: placement of banners at isicad.ru automatically implies their putting at  PLMpedia):
"Persons" section is also supported (but worthy of a radical extension). An example is an article about John Walker published at PLMpedia long ago and these days widely circulated in the web due to the 30th anniversary of Autodesk:

We try to carefully maintain and expand the section that represents the Internet and paper media including analytics & consulting, here is a a fragment, I hope, in fact, all are presented:

Today in Russia, and, perhaps, and in the world (could somebody correct me?), there is no analogue of such PLM Encyclopedia which by the way is attended quite actively. All comments, corrections, contributions, recommendations are welcome to info@plmpedia.ru or info@isicad.ru.
