Tree of Knowledge - Online Networking Reference Guide

Description: What I am looking for is creating a networked reference guide that allows ANYONE to start studying ANYTHING.

The goal is ambitious and challenging: building a reference database that allows a user to select their desired topic (say, "brain surgery"), and obtain a list of reference books, recommended readings and other postings (think somewhat like wikipedia).

Of course by clicking "brain surgery", you will be presented by a huge amount of references you cannot handle, yet. The idea is, that for each reference, you can find its prerequisite reference ("recommended prerequisites for this level").

Eventually, in this manner, you could walk down the path of references back to basic “primary school” levels (or which ever level seems suitable for you to pick up from). Along the way, you would also see when the “brain surgery” path and the “heart surgery” paths meet at “surgery”. Or later “surgery” and “nuclear physics” meet at “physics”.

As a networked service, the database would be maintained by its users, in a manner similar to wikipedia. This would allow the service to have a sufficient level coverage of topics and growth too.

I would prefer this to be a free add-free service similar to wikipedia, but at least advertising bookshops or other topic-related items should not be too off-topic for the reader.
Need from others:
Need Business Partners Need Business Partners
I need ideas how to implement this:
- has this already been implemented somewhere?
- could it be implemented by combining existing networking services: delicious, digg, wikipedia, blogs, etc?
