NZ: the infographic - Wiki New Zealand launches

Wiki New Zealand launched today, a new site chock full of infographics and data about Godzone and how we compare to other countries.

It's brainchild of Lillian Grace, who used to work for a think tank (the New Zealand Institute) but seems pretty  talented regardless.

The site is under a Creative Commons license too, so anyone can pick up on its work (if they properly credit it).

Wiki NZ is a non-profit with charitable status pending.

Trustees include Kylie Pellett, daughter of the more famous Selwyn.

Check it out here.

Ah wikipedia - founded on the idea that 10,000 idiots know more than one expert who has spent their own life devoted to a subject. And then those 10,000 idiots are defended by a moderator appointed by one of their own who will carefully remove anything that disagrees with said idiots.

And this is why Wiki is not permitted as a source for anything.

This isn't Wikipedia. It's a place where data from places such as statistics NZ is made easier to interpret by being in a visual form.

You should go and look, all of the graphs state where the raw data was derived.

Thank you Anonymous #2!

It has been really nice to get so many messages of support since launching on Sunday, they mean a lot to me personally.

For those not so supportive, feel free to contact me with any suggestions for enhancement: contribute@wikinewzealand.org

Cheers,
Lillian
