Wiki-pedia leanings… Cloned Wiki’s!

January 6, 2007 8 comments

Found this place as a rec on one of my mailing lists, but really liking it since I love to read fanfiction. Been such a fan since I was eleven, so it has been a little over a decade since I started with commercial Internet surfing. But back to my thoughts as I write this entry, the rec is one of the many clones of the infamous Wikipedia trend. A trend where fact can be edited by the masses.. So even if there is so much copyright infrigments and issues.

The trend is really good for the hoardes of people just seeking information. So from the original trend of Wikipedia.com being an editable encylopedia, which I love to spend time on reading informaiton articles… there are other similar and growing pages. There might be more, but I found two other Wiki- inspired sites to keep up with. One is this…

http://www.fanhistory.com
A place that talks about the various events and beginnings of different fanfiction history on the Internet.

Drama-Wiki
A place that gives details of various east Asian dramas.

These are both still growing websites.. so I have high hopes to see something come about this opportunistic information sharing.

So anyhow..it’ll be nice to know of any other Wiki-inspired sites out there.

EDIT – April 15, 2007

Ummmm.. my friend, gave me these suggestions.

Audio-wiki
A place that talks about various Japanese audio dramas.. helpful for people to learn about what drama cd plots or seiyuu’s are there.

Wiki. ThePPN
A place that celebrates Asian pop culture.

Unencylopedia
Place where anything goes… interesting and pointless Wiki I believe.
