Ever thought of a "Learning Greek wiki"

Like wikipedia, but specifically about learning the language. Each wiki page could be based around lessons. I'm using White's so I could start to write up (since it's out of copywrite) the first lessons and people could add concepts, ideas and opinions to it.

Language and Ancient Greeks

I am curious. Do you think language shows how a culture thinks? I think what I mean is is some of the properties of their culture and way of thinking and who they were inherit in their language?
