The first phase was part of Nagel's proprietary database containing corporate data and requirements for meeting Sarbanes-Oxley Act obligations.

In late October 2006, Nagel retooled the domain, creating a wiki directory running a Semantic extension of MediaWiki software. Nagel reached out to Gregory Kohs to form a partnership that resulted in Kohs promoting and marketing the wiki directory at Centiare.
