A Wiki Experiment: Group edit the ideal bookmarks starter list

So Discourse supports Wiki’s–collaborative spaces where anyone can edit for the benefit of all. Discourse has change tracking, so hopefully no one is inclined toward vandalism. So here’s my suggestion as an idea that allows us all to get familiar with this feature. Let’s pretend we want to give someone who just got their first phone/computer a starting list of bookmarks. Please add your essentials to the list, following the format. (Categories with lists of sites underneath, and any description/notes after.)
