Since it’s the last Monday of the month, we wanted to take a look at some of the cool Wikispaces-related things that people have been talking about this month. Here are some of the highlights from January:
Disaster Relief in Australia
Thousands of people were affected by the terrible floods in Queensland in December, then by further flooding that hit Victoria this month. The Fitzroy Oxfam Group’s Disaster Relief Australia has been helping to match people in need with the donors who are ready to help.

- Grace Gabriel: “Do you have goods and services to donate to #qldfloods? Or need basic home and contents? Go to Oxfam Registry – http://bit.ly/farxwC“
- Geordie Guy: “Oh thank GOD someone put this stuff in a proper Wiki instead of running it on fricking Facebook: http://bit.ly/farxwC“

Project 365 is an informal network of bloggers, each one sharing a year of their lives, one photograph at a time.
