Michael Robertson, the founder of Mp3.com and Linspire, is hoping to take the proverbial wisdom of crowds and use it for a deal wiki called…wait for it….Dealipedia. It looks like a TMZ for the Wall Street Journal set — without the fun pictures. Instead it uses filings, press releases and (this is the sexy bit) anonymous tips from users to determine who paid what for companies and how much founders made.
