About Maphew

Hello there, welcome to the web abode of Matt Wilkie. I've been employed as a GIS Technician, now Geomatics Analyst, since 1992 or so. If the job title is new to you, it's a fancy way, make that an opaque way, of saying I use computers to make maps -- thus the moniker -- and a great deal of other things related to that process.

I'm drawn to computer based communication systems, having run the gamut of fidonet, BBSes, newsgroups,  collaborative web editing platforms (drupal, expression engine), wikis (meatball, twiki (now foswiki), mindtouch) and so on. Having now run some dozen or so of these sites in the last decade and a half I've come to realise I'm reasonably good at finding decent tools, learning how they work, and setting them up, but I absolutely suck when it comes to to their primary purpose:  building communities. Case in point, yukongis.ca, the only such project still in existence, though only just.

The intention of this site is to suck in the various flotsam and jetsam I've left scattered across the net, provide a centre of gravity for my digital self. We'll see what happens with that, won't we? ;-)

PS: if you find any of the resources on this site useful and would like to thank me, and could use 2GB of free online storage with seamless multicomputer access, use this link to open a Dropbox account (you and my significant other both get an extra 250mb). If you just want the 2gb and no strings to us, just go straight to www.dropbox.com.
