ITP lacks accessible memory of its people and projects beyond any given 3 year period. Using the dormant data in administrative databases about the people, projects, and classes, ITPedia is a website that brings the last five years of our people and our work into a wiki that is viewable and editable by current students and alumni alike. Using the commonly repeated set of relationships between people and projects as a structure, ITPedia provides a space for free-form collaboration that increases the granularity of the community memory over time as well as persuading a higher level of engagement out of the community. 'Edit this page' is the story behind this effort.
