About the Gameboy Development Wiki
The GBDev Wiki is an effort to collect and systemize information about the Game Boy's Z80-like CPU, its hardware, tools for software development, perhaps example source code, and serve as a reference for people who might be interested in Game Boy software development and hardware modification.
The information is out there. But as I see it there are a couple of problems that with the fact that the information is scattered over the internet.
- It might be hard to find some of the more obscure information. Having the information in a Wiki will make it more readily accessible for those who might search for it.
- Most information on the net is not editable. By putting this information in a Wiki, anyone can contribute to the information.
- As time passes by, some information will vanish, because people who used to develop for and document the old Game Boy models will probably have forgotten their passwords/not care about their old web space accounts, etc. I will guarantee that the information in this Wiki will survive many years to come.
Therefore, I believe a Wiki is a good format for the information.
