Welcome to Thorx Wiki. A place for idea mongering and collaborative invention.
This is a Wiki-as-Workshop, intended to grow organically (albiet slowly so far), and randomly. What is it for?
- A placeholder for random notes.
- A drafting site for the ThorxBlog
- Archive ground for writings and ideas
So, please feel free to jump in and create/edit as you see the need. A note though - the aim is that ThorxWiki content will be "professional" in styling. Humour is appreciated and encouraged, but mindless joking is best moved to NemWiki. Speaking of NemWiki, a lot of the content here has been imported from the original NemWiki and still needs moving to the new one, so hit the Random Page link and see if you get something that needs updating. Also, alot of the original NemWiki content was written from Nemo's first-person perspective and uncredited. These should either be refactored to be third person perspective, or credited appropriately.
ThorxWiki is not as policy-driven as Wikipedia, but aims to respect copyright.

Reminder... ThorxWiki is descendant from an earlier 'NemWiki'. Many of the original ideas are still on the NemWiki page, awaiting a revisit, polish, and update to ThorxWiki standards, or moving to the new NemWiki. Please be encouraged to visit the NemWiki page and followup ideas there :)
The trouble with having a fertile mind is that the weeds grow as prolific as the pastures
