Tihare is a company director and IT consultant and the man behind the Waihekepedia idea. (thanks Hack Tihare 21:22, 31 August 2007 (NZST))
The concept of Waihekepedia came out of my wife (Pickle) and I feeling disappointed with the number of great waiheke URL's either sitting going nowhere or promotional sites pretending to be information sites.
I chose and registered www.waihekepedia.com preferring the .com over .org etc because, and I'll admit freely, the similarity to [www.wikipedia.com] We also registered www.wikipedia.co.nz as it must be noted that New Zealanders have a tendancy to search .co.nz so there you have it.
The mechanics were put together by Cletus. Bruced customised the mediawiki program, Blank designed the logo and Hackademic provideseditorial direction.
None of us profess to being experts in this and I am really pleased with progress so far.
I am sure that in time it will grow. Thanks must go to Gulf News for the cover story.
