Student Radio Wiki

Over the last week, the Student Radio Association, which I'm now chair of, has set up a Student Radio Wiki. It wasn't my initial idea and thankfully I didn't have to install it, but it's already working great and should turn into a valuable resource for student radio stations.

One question which has already been asked is where the boundary between it and the infamous Wikipedia and less-infamous MediaUK The Knowledge is. My initial response has been to suggest that whilst Wikipedia and MediaUK aim to build up knowledge, the SRA wiki should be more focused on advice, help and support. There's little point in writing up detailed histories of various types of radio stations, when these can be built by a bigger userbase at Wikipedia. Instead, we should be offering partial advice to other student stations based upon our own experiences.

That's just my idea though, and I guess the wiki will evolve in its own way...
