Oxidized What?

Our January update recently went out to all Wikispaces members, albeit in early February. In the update we highlighted a great Wikispace called Oxidized White Burgundies. Of course we didn’t call it Oxidized White Burgundies. We called it Oxidized White Burgandies. To the oneophiles everywhere who cringed, sorry about that.

Now you might be wondering, why was Oxidized Burgs our choice for space of the month? Kind of a niche interest isn’t it? Well it is, but it’s also a great example of what Wikispaces is great for.

First, some background. The goal of the Oxidized Burgs space is “to collect and share data about bottles of white wine from the Burgundy region of France. It enables us to assess the likelihood and severity of reported flaws, in particular regarding the issue of premature oxidation. This space also facilitates our secondary goal, which is to gather information about the possible root causes of these flaws.”

Now this isn’t something that everyone cares about. But the people who do care, care about it a lot. And that’s the point. People all over the world want to share, collate, and make use of their collective knowledge easily. They don’t need a lot of features or advanced tools to do so. What they need is a simple way to post, edit, and manage information over time. And that’s what we try to provide at Wikispaces.

So, go learn a little bit about Burgundy, and then start a space for whatever piques your interest.
