|11 Dec 2008 05:37||Oil Wiki (by roopak)|
|My wiki site focuses on the oil situation in the U.S. and how it relates to the world. My goal was to provide statistical information that would give a very clear view of consumption and production in the U.S. and then closely follow current events. I felt that providing too many statistics would overwhelm an incoming analyst. Therefore, I spent the majority of my time following the news and giving short summaries of the major events occurring each week.|
|10 Dec 2008 03:26||Music Wiki (by schmidke)|
|The topic of my wiki site is the music recording industry. I chose this industry to study and take a closer look at because new things are always happening within the industry and I am a big fan of music. I found the topic to be pretty interesting throughout the semester and I was able to use a lot of web-related tools to stay on top of the news.|
|10 Dec 2008 06:07||Apple Wiki (by dpnick)|
|My Wiki discusses Apple Inc. and provides information on how an analyst show follow the company. Apple is a very interesting company; a decade ago they only produced computers, and now they are the leaders in music players, a growing leader in the phone industry and digital music sales, as well as other consumer electronics.|
|10 Dec 2008 01:45||Walt Disney Pictures Wiki (by Susan Kennedy)|
|I loved working on this project!! This wiki is supposed to provide an overview on the state of Walt Disney Pictures as it stands today, its affiliation with Pixar, and its current and upcoming projects. Some of the other parts should include suggested search techniques and presentation elements. These objectives should be made clear in the "About Me" and "My Research" tabs. Be sure to visit those tabs because there is a link in there that isnt found anywhere else on the site. (i.e. What this research does not cover)|
|10 Dec 2008 00:22||Start Up Wiki (by dylanb)|
|For my project I created a guide for potential entrepreneurs who are interested in expanding their idea into a product and also acquiring funding for their startups. I tried to do this by examining some general information, some issues effecting the industry as well as new interesting startups.|
