That's the main issue I'm having at the moment with -- besides the ones I've added, so far only  
Farrar has contributed.  I'm going to keep adding pages myself, but  
it's slow going.  A friend of mine said that everyone likes to read  
resources like wikis, but it's hard to get people to contribute.  I'm  
just as guilty, of course -- I use Wikipedia all the time, but I never  
contribute anything to it.  I'm hoping that once I add enough articles  
that people will start contributing, or at least send me an email (via  
the DMCTechWiki Yahoo Group) and ask me to add some information that  
isn't yet present, if they don't want to add it themselves.

And that is exactly what I've decided to make the initial focus of the  
DeLorean Tech Wiki.  I'm trying to catalog all the documentation, user  
groups, vendors, mailing lists, forums and web sites containing  
whatever information is out there.  Rather than integrating all their  
information, I'm summing them up and providing links to their pages  
(no point in re-inventing the wheel, after all).  This seems like it  
would be the most valuable use in the short term.

After the bulk of that is together, I'm hoping to get more direct  
technical knowledge added, either through summing up information on  
other sites and linking to those sites, or by adding new information  
not available elsewhere.
