If you think about it, situations very similar to those in Ender's Game are happening at the present.

I worked on the Noodle's wiki for a while until I got bored (I was really the only one contributing for a year or so), and frankly, I think my writing kinda sucked. I'd be nice to see some well written (hopefully) and comprehensive Enderverse info.
