Commons Experiments

3 02 2010

I am experimenting with creating my first pages in Wikipedia. It is a creative commons that relies on the use of a php. text editor much like word press. I am finding it rather difficult to start since php and commons creations are both new to me.I am very curious to see what happen with my new articles, pages and portals that I am attempting to create.

The idea of shared authorship is very powerful and when something is created across a platform like the web it can be interesting to see other peoples interpretations of what you are trying to accomplish. And in turn to study the choices they make independently to altruistically assist you in your task.

This is my first Article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Modern_Culinary_History

My goal is to create a Portal like this one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Animals

But as of now I have no idea how to get the code to collaborate. Possibly a human interaction will solve my lack of knowledge – on Wikipedia they call them “editors”. Or maybe I will just muddle through over time on the php. road to mastery.
