A Wiki

I just started a wiki — my first ever. I don’t know whether I will continue it, or whether it will fade away, but it’s focussed on Victoria, BC (where I live), specifically its urban development aspects. Blame WetPaint — couldn’t resist starting this up.

I’m actually trying to write something marginally serious about architecture (specifically here, in Victoria), but I’m afraid that my 3 years of writing online have retarded my abilities: I feel more comfortable writing text that will show up as email or on some webpage — the others feel dead somehow. Oh dear. Is it legit to write drafts of one’s essays or articles on wikis first? 😉

So, my wiki is called Victoria City Style Council, and the “home” or “welcome” page explains some of that. The key piece that got me started was reading Stephen Miller’s Conversation; A History of a Declining Art. The result was the Style v. Substance piece, s.v. “Welcome.”
