The idea behind Wikiaudio is to be a reliable user created database of information pertaining to the art and science of anything audio or sound related. What differentiates Wikiaudio from Wikipedia is a niche focus on sound, audio and the inclusion of user created tutorials.
WikiAudio has been jump-started mostly with content aggregated from Wikipedia but we hope to see it grow into original content.
WikiAudio was created by William Turner and cofounded by Lathan Hodge and launched May of 2008. The project was initially a bit of a "loose experiment" to see if there would be interest in such a project. It has since been relaunched for technical reasons as well as to reflect the learning experience of the founders.
