asked me to create this page for the Japanese Maya Community. My japanese is limited (non-existant really), but hopefully you and Dean can do something interesting here.
To start with, I'll copy in his original email:
Because PPI uses an intranet WIKI and everyone here knows how to edit
a WIKI, I showed you this morning in my presentation the Tokeru Wiki
that I use online most of the time.
You can set up your own home page or User Page when you become one of the Tokeru TWikiUsers
. People from all over the woorld have joined and contributed to this Maya Wiki. I don't actually know what the word Wiki means to the people of the Pacific but my view of it is that it is a Web Interactive Knowledge Interface.
Matt here; Wiki is meant to be hawiian slang for 'quick', so wiki implies a fast editable website.
Please join and make your pages in Japanese, no problem, you will be the people reading it after all. Then invite other Animators you know from around Japan to also join. When you work out a tricky solution to a Maya problem and want to have somewhere to write it down for later use, then use this Wiki and share the tips with the world. It becomes very convienient as you can access all of its info from anywhere you might be.
Tokeru.com wiki site
Maybe Matt will add a MayaJapan
page/section or something even
better!? So you can write info in Japanese and spread the word around
Japan. ( done! Matt
Of course we Gijin won't be able to read it but it would be a great
resource across the Japanese industry. Dozo!
