Wiki New Zealand

December 10th, 2012 at 2:00 pm by David Farrar

A nice new web resource – Wiki New Zealand. They are collecting as much data as possible on NZ, and presenting it graphically. I can see myself referring here often. You can help them out to:

  •  Providing data or access and permission to use data
  •  Providing guidance in your area of subject expertise
  •  Notifying us of any content errors or technical bugs
  •  Suggesting how New Zealand could be more effective or useful
  •  Suggesting other topic areas for adding
  •  Volunteering your time to create graphs
  •  Telling us how else you would like to contribute

Wikipedia has become an invaluable resource, showing the power of a wiki approach. This is not structured quite the same way, but has great potential.

    I love wiki’s and use them frequently. My favourite being http://www.rationalwiki.org as it takes a humourous stance against
    pseudo-science and authoritarianism.

    This is cool, but is only the second best web resource I’ve discovered today, after gizoogle.net which translates any website into ghetto speak.

    Also the NZ Wiki should have “Mickey to Tiki” by Dick Frizzell as the banner image…

    Do we still have to rely upon KB for gutter speak?
