    Im stubbing a new forum to foster the discussion about how we can improve our wiki. It needs help. Pretty bad. I want the information to be organized better,. I want better quality. I want the Wiki to use links to Wikipedia and other good sources as often as possible. I also want a lot more empirical data.

    Got any ideas about how to do it?

    Here is a page where you can take part in laying out the organization of the Wiki:

    docs.google.com/drawings/edit – You have to sign in with a Google account to edit, which is free to set up.

    spreadsheets.google.com/ccc – This page is where you can help with the quantification of everything about Seasteads. When the sheets start to fill in we will post them inside the Wiki in such a way that they automatically show the current data.

    Hi,

    why would you use GoogleDocs? You can simply create a whole new structure on your own page in Wiki.

    Anyway, do feel free to go ahead and improve the wiki directly!

    Bye,

    Joep

    basically it needs a pretty massive re-organization.

    Well what is your proposal?

    You can create new pages I’m sure,

    possibly could make a whole new structure,

    simply link to it from the current one.

    i didnt want to go and change everything on my own without other ‘steaders approval. ya know?

    Hey, feel free to update or add content.

    If it’s a major change, or some disagreemet,

    can use the talk-page, for communicating about it.

    the forums are here as well of course.

    if anybody hasnt seen this yet, check it out:

    docs.google.com/drawings/edit – You have to sign in with a Google account to edit, which is free to set up.

    spreadsheets.google.com/ccc – This page is where you can help with the quantification of everything about Seasteads. When the sheets start to fill in we will post them inside the Wiki in such a way that they automatically update the current data.

    if everybody is familiar with these tools, we could crowdsource massive amounts of data and make it simple and easy to bring new talent up to speed when they visit TSI! we need fresh blood, and it shouldn’t take weekss of squabbling on the forum and individual research to bring them up to speed with our objectives. this will enable us to provide a graphical representation of all the known information for the noobs. a lot of us do a lot of research on the web. let’s share it, not in a way that has to be searched – but graphically!

    many people are going to have the same perspective i had and think that seasteads should sit on raised platforms like oil rigs. it will be so much easier to help them understand the advantages of alternative designs, and if for no other reason than to provide new designers a target for how much better semisubs need to be if they want to compete against submersibles.

    lets share the information! dont make people spin their wheels when they could be making better contributions!

    as you read and find information relevant to seasteading on the web, find a place on our shared spreadsheets to plug in the data. when you open the spreadsheet take notice that it has MANY separate sheets listed across the bottom. Maybe you read a great article explaining something or found a product you think would be better than other products, or you know of a form of governance you believe is the best. plug it in! plug it in!
