I think that you should add anything you want, if it's something you think 
is a topic of interest to many people in the noisebridge community.  You 
should (in my opinion) do it in question and answer format and start with 
the most beginner basics.  Think of the questions as a class for 
beginners, with questions climbing up the ladder toward advanced 
knowledge.  But most importantly, have fun with it.

it's the opposite of anonymous - if people add links to their user page at 
the beginning of the topic.  I just did that, thanks to your suggestion.

It's a way of people at noisebridge to share what skills they have, and a 
way for people to figure out how much they know relative to other people, 
so that everyone can learn more.

get on the wiki and get involved!  it's fun!
