Centiare is a brand created in 2001 by Huntington Beach, California accountant and consultant, Karl Nagel.
The brand has gone through three distinct phases:
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 Centiare.com 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. This effort gained strength through early 2007, but ultimately began to fade. When Nagel decided to pull the plug on the site, Kohs negotiated a transfer of the entire contents of Centiare.com to Kohs' own site, MyWikiBiz.com. Thus, MyWikiBiz itself underwent a substantial re-branding and re-purpose from its original mission.
In 2008, Nagel intended to release a new, non-wiki community site at Centiare.com, but this did not materialize.
