Chrysoberyl is an attempt to catalogue and curate all things produced by, and related to, Cat's Eye Technologies, largely revolving around its output of programming languages, tools, platforms, libraries, games, and music. It is sort of a cross between a wiki and a semantic web and The Devil's Dictionary.

When removing Kosuth's One and Three Chairs from exhibition, the major museum that owned the piece was reputedly uncertain as to where it should be stored, there being no department of "Conceptual art", and hence no specific storage area. Eventually it was stored according to the logic of the museum: the chair was stored in the design department, the photograph of the chair in the photography department and the photocopy of the dictionary stored in the library! So in effect they could only store the piece by destroying it.

The grammar and diction of Chrysoberyl's auto-generated descriptions might not be so hot at times; please cut it some slack in this regard.
