ProductWiki's goal is to be the most comprehensive product information resource supported by a passionate community.
We want to have information on every product; from the most popular cultural icons to the independent and innovative designers that are selling their creations out of their garages. It's an ambitious goal, and it's going to take a lot of people working together. That's why we're a wiki and that's where you come in. We've already reached 13,000 products in our first year, and, together, we can get to the goal of 100,000 and beyond!
Wikis are a type of website where every reader is also an editor. If you see something wrong with a page, you can fix it yourself. There is no need to wait for someone else to correct it. You can also add any new information you'd like to existing pages or start the collaboration process by adding a product. You, the community, are in control of how and what content is created. Wikipedia is a great example showing that wikis are the best way to create a large-scale resource of information.
Through collaboration, we can build a comprehensive resource of high-quality, accurate product information. We also encourage you to express your opinion. There are many ways to share your thoughts and experiences with products that you've come across in your everyday life. Sharing your opinion can be as simple as leaving a comment, to writing an in-depth review complete with pictures and video.
The content contained in ProductWiki is openly distributable. This means that anybody can take and use information in any way they choose; our content isn't locked up in a silo. As the ultimate free product database, we'll help foster innovation for product-based websites and services.
Jimmy Wales once said that Wikipedia "makes the Internet not suck". While that goal has been accomplished for general information, the Internet still sucks for online shopping and product research. The Internet is filled with spam on low quality websites trying to make money on the back of the consumer.
We want to make online shopping enjoyable.
