Wikipedia grows a green offshoot – Wikia Green

Submitted by on Wednesday, 24 September 2008 Loading Add to favourites  No Comment

Wikia Green for eco friendly informationJimmy Wales, Co-founder of the famous Wikipedia.org, has just unveiled Wikia Green. Just like wikipedia, wikia Green can be edited by anyone, but its emphases is on eco friendly and environmental issues.

It is a lot more ‘human’ with tips and advice rather than purely factually based encyclopaedic content.

Influenced by Al Gore, Jimmy reckons that wikia green will allow bloggers and other webmasters to send their readers there to gather useful information rather than having to regurgitate it themselves.

The initial focus will be on content and magazine style articles. By setting up Wikia Green, Jimmy hopes to provide documented articles and help clarify some of the confusion surrounding eco issues. There is a lot of conflicting information available, and the hope is that this can be bought together in one place to ‘sort the wheat from the chaff.’

There are lots of great green information sites out there, so it will be interesting to see if Wikia Green finds it niche.
