Any really good 'literature wikis'?

wikis [60]–[62]

I have yet to find any really good 'literature wiki', but I'd be fascinated to see one at work. The basic idea would be to provide the service of a literature management tool, help writing scientific introductions (categorizing literature chronologically and by topic), to work as a decentralised 'journal club' system and to provide a centralised 'community feedback' mechanism for the literature.

Actually I don't think all of that is as hard as it sounds... Any links to projects with this aim?
