Wiki Fun

For my class, Internet Technologies and Planning, we were asked to create our own wiki, as well as contribute to the class wiki, “Best Places to Visit in Los Angeles.” A wiki is an editable website that can be shared between a number of people. My first experience with using a wiki was during the fall 2006 semester. For a USC urban design lab based on the rebuilding of USC, the students utilized a class wiki to present projects that would aid in the cities recovery. This wiki was only accessible by the students of the class, but some wikis, such as Wikipedia, are accessible, and editable, by the vast public. Wikis of this size tend to be self-correcting, as so many people are overseeing the site and watching out for the truth in the text.

For this project, I created a wiki for my public art studies class. We are creating a small publication for our graduation and I created this wiki so we can easily share out text and ideas. This is the perfect way for everyone to see each other’s work, while contributing to the overall project. To access this wiki, please click on the following link: http://publicartstudies.pbwiki.com/

For Internet Technologies and Planning, we were asked to contribute to the class wiki, “Best Places to Visit in Los Angeles.” My contribution to the wiki was the Silver Lake Reservoir.
