Australian Internet Startups Wiki

Via a post entitled 42 Cool Australian Internet Startups on the Rave About it blog I found out about a terrific Australian initiative being undertaken by Jon Yau at Australianblogs.com.au. Building on a post by Vishal Sharma (later reproduced and edited by Richard MacManus at Read/Write Web), Jon has created an Australian wiki page and writes “AustralianWiki.com.au is the wiki of the AustralianBlogs group of websites. An Australian-centric wiki, it is hoped that it can be another platform for local collaboration and interaction.

The purpose of the wiki, which is showcasing Australian Internet Startups, is to give local startups the opportunity to introduce their product or service, and a bit about the people behind them.

Jon writes “I was just keen to continue the thread by providing a wiki to act as a ‘rolling’ register of local web startups……what I had in mind was that by creating this wiki page eventually some journo would stumble onto it and pick up the scent“.

I think this is an excellent initiative, and really hope that it helps to promote local Australian talent (including dLook of course ;)).

So far the sites (47 by my count) listed are :

Great stuff!

    Hey Meg,

    Thanks for the plug. dLook looks fantastic, let’s hope some some good PR comes of it for all involved. :)

    Hi Jon

    Thanks – no problem – what goes around comes around…. 😉

  3. […] Still a great resource, but probably not as fully functional as Gnoos and The Australian Index. This is part of a suite of sites which includes weblogger.com.au (see above) and Australian Wiki, which I mentioned previously. […]
