Introduction: The Media Centre wiki is an online project funded by the University of Auckland as an extension of its Media Centre in the School of Architecture and Planning. The wiki aims at developing objective, non-biased resources for those engaged digitally in architecture, urbanism and design. Ideally, the MCWiki would like to be a subject oriented encyclopaedia which provides:
· Articles on specific design software
· Centralised, themed links to video and text tutorials for design software
· Articles on digital fabrication technologies and machines
· Articles on digital printing, layout and colour management
· Articles on practical computing, file storage and troubleshooting support for designers
Collaboration: Articles are written collaboratively, in much the same way as they are on other wikis including Wikipedia. In the same vein, all content on the MCWiki is readable by anyone with an Internet connection. At present, in order to contribute to the content of the MCWiki users need to be students or staff at the University of Auckland. If you would like to begin contributing to this wiki, either from inside or outside of the University of Auckland, then please contact the Media Centre. You can contribute anonymously or with your legal identity. Images, text and video contributions are all welcome.
