One more comment. The page says:

# Grokstar aims to be a sample blogging application for Grok.
# Grok Wiki aims to be a sample wiki application for Grok.

This is perhaps not entirely correct. Grokstar in particular aims to be 
a full-fledged blogging application eventually, and it's using Grok. 
Because it's an early application that uses Grok, it's more of a Grok 
test-bed application than a sample application.

Grokwiki right now is more of a sample application, as it's not 
developed independently of Grok and nobody seems to be driving it to be 
a full-featured wiki.

We think test-bed applications at this stage of Grok's development are 
perhaps more important than sample applications, as developing them we 
can also think about how to improve Grok itself. Though as time 
progresses and Grok matures, we need more sample applications, of course.

It's still fine to link to these applications. Perhaps say the following 

* Grok Wiki is a simple wiki application written with Grok.

* Grokstar is a blogging application being developed with Grok.
