2011/11/26 Commenced adding Creating things, a series of pages collating resources to help you create ideas and turn them into reality. Brief descriptions of different creative processes are listed along with links to detail on the key steps and lots of resources.
The mix of approaches from artistic creation to technical is to provide alternative ways to suit your style, or challenge you to try new ways. It is also to encourage a flow of ideas and increased interaction between these communities. Some examples of cross community activity can be found in the Inspirations page.
The intent is to create a 'really useful' resource that contains summary information about different processes and techniques, but then most likely will link to external sites for more information. It is not intended to create an internet directory of categories and links and it is not intended to create lists of software and other items purely for advertising. It is hoped that the community that grows around this site will manage the content to include diverse content that is 'really useful', and not just categorised lists of links.
There are now nearly 30 pages on this UsableDevices wiki, and while the content, structure and presentation are all 'works in progress', the approach, style and value of content is starting to show it's usefulness.
Older news :
Initial content is an Inspirations page Inspirations, that summarises some inspiring people and things/projects. This page is also added to the main navigation links. These have been blogged about at UsableDevices as a start to advertising their move here. This is the first of several community pages to collate "useful" and share information.
Some basic help on how to edit and contribute is also being added.
