The wiki of wikis
Wikis are for people to easily collaborate on the creation of content. Wikipedia, one of the most successful projects on the web, is a wiki.
This page is the master wiki for organising projects on visionOntv. Crucially it is a self-organising space.
Here is a step-by-step guide to using the wiki.
Please try to build the structure of the wiki as you go along.
Here's an example: Let's say people are talking about which video cameras to buy, and you want to talk about tape cameras - for that you should create a sub-page for tape cameras. But then someone else wants to talk about memory card cameras - that is not a sub-page off the tape cameras page, but a sub-page off the original video camera page.
So when you add content, think if you are writing it in the right place, and enjoy adding to the fund of knowledge which the wiki pages will be by making it really useful, like wikipedia.
If in any doubt, please contact us at email@example.com
Ideas for website
Feedback from people indicates strongly that visionOntv as project is too diverse to have a strong profile (see the difficulty we have describing it to anyone!). This makes the current single website very confusing. A website should do one thing only!
visionOntv is really three strongly-related but separate projects:
1. video production / distribution - call it VISIONONTV (Hamish has a mock-up of the frontpage of this - http://visionon.tv/test
Things which don't work yet:
The activity bar
RH proposal: have a front page with one video window, the activity bar, and a description
2. video citizen journalism training - call it? - streetreporter.org
Now we have mobilereporter.org for funders etc
3. "hacking the media" - a project which provides tools and resources for media content producers to "become their own geeks" and has geeks making those tools for independent use by content creators. - call it HACK THE MEDIA
Street reporter website has a version 1.
