Hi, my name is Wayne Eddy.
I live in Mill Park, Australia, which is located on the northern edge of Melbourne.
I am a Civil Engineer & I work for Whittlesea City Council as Strategic Asset Planning Co-ordinator.
Of late I have become very interested in Collaboration & Collective Intelligence, and I can imagine a day in 5 or 10 or 20 years time, when most problems will be solved by large groups of people working together using collaborative software tools & expert systems, and I wonder what sort of roll Wikidot might play in that sort of world.
My main contribution to harnessing the collective intelligence of mankind so far is the Local Government & Municipal Knowledge Base.
I have been playing tennis for about twenty-five years. Firstly for Nichols Point Tennis Club & at the Mildura Lawn Tennis Club, then with the Bundaberg & District Tennis Association, and most recently with the Epping Tennis Club..
I used to read a lot of Science Fiction, and some of my favorite authors include; Vernor Vinge, David Brin, Peter F Hamilton, Iain M Banks, Greg Egan, Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle.
I taught myself C++ about 25 years ago, but I have only really ever worked on one project - The Atlas of Habitable Worlds - which I haven't worked on since I discovered Wikidot, but I might go back to one day.
Lastly I am die-hard Richmond Supporter, for the 99.9% of the world population that that means nothing to, Richmond is an Australian Rules Football Club, also known as the Tigers. Unfortunately we haven't won a flag since 1980, but there is always next year…..
I can be contacted by e-mail at either:
