Here’s the long-promised wiki:
We’re going to make this into the place where scientists and engineers will go when they’re looking for reliable information on environmental problems, or ideas for projects to work on.
We’ve got our work cut out for us. If you click the link today — September 27th, 2010 — you won’t see much there. But I promise to keep making it better, with bulldog determination. And I hope you join me.
In addition to the wiki there’s a discussion forum:
where we can discuss work in progress on the Azimuth Project, engage in collaborative research, and decide on Azimuth policies.
Anybody can read the stuff on the Azimuth Forum. But if you want to join the conversation, you need to become a member. To learn how, read this and carefully follow the steps.
You’ll see a few sample articles on the Azimuth Project wiki, but they’re really just stubs. My plan now is to systematically go through some big issues — starting with some we’ve already discussed here — and blog about them. The resulting blog posts, and your responses to them, will then be fed into the wiki. My goal is to generate:
• readable, reliable summaries of environmental challenges we face,
• pointers to scientists and engineers working on these challenges,
and lists of
• ideas these people have had,
• questions that they have,
• questions that they should be thinking about, but aren’t.
Let the games begin! Let’s try to keep this planet a wonderful place!
