Hello everyone!

You can be part of what could become the biggest innovation of the industry this year: VoiceOverPedia.org – The Voice Industry Encyclopedia (http://voiceoverpedia.org).

VoiceOverPedia is a web-based encyclopedia experiment for the voice over industry. It will be collaboratively written by its readers on a interactive type of website called a wiki that makes collaboration easy. Many people will be constantly improving VoiceOverPedia and all of the improvements will be recorded in article histories.

VoiceOverPedia is not Voice123’s idea. Voice123 is just sponsoring the ideas that many people have shared with us. Creators of on-line content were collectively awarded Time’s Person of the Year 2006. This prestigious award celebrates the accelerating success of collaboration and interaction of millions of users worldwide. Wikis were the first particular “Web 2.0” trend mentioned. Many agree that the time has come for a community-created encyclopedia for the voice industry, and we agree.

VoiceOverPedia is looking for volunteer contributors and administrators. VoiceOverPedia needs people that can write articles about the industry and also those that can teach others how to properly use VoiceOverPedia and wikis in general. The most active volunteers of VoiceOverPedia will be featured on the home page of VoiceOverPedia, with a link to their biography and bibliography. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please send a message to info@voiceoverpedia.org to receive further instructions.

I, Alex Torrenegra, will personally direct the initial coordination of all volunteers. Why am I doing it? I am big fan of public participation in the creation and preservation of knowledge. The more we can compile and share, the better our industry will be.

Best regards,

Voice123 - The Voice Marketplace
