» Despite the surprisingly high levels of traffic to this site the project still remains rather static and some measures need to be taken in order to engage a more active demographic. Possibly if the existing architectural data was to be transformed into other mediums the collaboration could kick off there. Maybe text is a more malleable and accessible medium for the internet.

» yorik recently introduced me to Verse - a set of plug-ins designed for Blender, 3d Studio Max and other 3D modelers. Essentially, this technology revolutionizes collaborative computer modeling, by linking multiple users via internet. Verse synchronizes the changes done on a single machine by distributing them to all other clients in real time. The whole project is still young and yet to be properly documented, However it seems very promising, and may be an interesting direction to take with Wiki Architecture.
Follow these links for more info: Verse Blender, Blender Wiki and GraphicAll to obtain a Blender version with Verse
