Assignment 1

Background:

Stanfordpedia is an online project intended to provide free encyclopedic information on Stanford University. Stanfordpedia's content is open to submission from anyone, allowing anyone to volunteer information on Stanford University to the website. Anyone is welcome to add or edit information, cross-references or citations, as long as they do so within Stanfordpedia's writing and editing policies and to an appropriate standard.

Stanfordpedia provides Wikipedia style information about Stanford University. Its focus gives it a more in depth look at Stanford while it's wikistyle editing allows anyone to add to the collective information on Stanford.

Service outline:

Stanfordpedia allows for users to browse through information about Stanford through the search function and through the main page suggestions. It also provides for the opportunity for members of the Stanford community to compile their knowledge by creating new pages or adding to existing ones.

Future:

In the future, I expect Stanfordpedia to be an important resource for anyone seeking any kind of information related to Stanford. I think new ways of finding information will be readily available through the power of technology and the internet, but Stanfordpedia will still be an important pool of pertinent information about Stanford.

I intend to keep the information as reliable as possible, but because of its wikistyle editing no guarantee could ever be placed on the validity of the information on the site at any given time.

The site will also constantly be evolving. New things happen at Stanford every day and new things will inevitably need to be added to the site to keep it current and relevant.
