Although the main purpose of this wiki is to be a clearinghouse and local repository of skills based information, there are many resources for print books (which some members will prefer) and other knowledge available on the Net. This is our links page to respected sources.
Appropedia is the site for collaborative solutions in sustainability, poverty reduction and international development through the use of sound principles and appropriate technology and the sharing of wisdom and project information. It is a wiki, a type of website which allows anyone to add, remove, or edit content. Registration is encouraged but not required for contributors.
Appropedia has been described as an "appropriate technology wiki," but it is much broader than that - it is a green wiki, and a wiki for all matters of international development and aid. But most importantly, Appropedia is an open site for stakeholders to come together to find, create and improve scalable and adaptable solutions. For more about our motivation, see Appropedia:Mission.
Appropedia began in April of 2006. In the earliest stages it was a collaboration between passionate people from the United States and Australia, and quickly expanded to become a global project.

Shelter Publications’ World Headquarters
We have been publishing high-quality soft cover books for almost 40 years. We operate out of a studio set in a garden in the small Northern California coastal town of Bolinas. We create each book from scratch, often starting with only an author's idea, and do all aspects of book production in-house – editing, design, typesetting, scanning, graphics enhancement, and color corrections. We seem to spend an impossible amount of time with each one, managing only one or at most two books a year.This wasn't a planned strategy, but it seems to have worked: our books have a very long shelf life.
We publish books we believe in. They grow naturally out of our interests, and we do all we can to get the final product out to people in as fine a form as we can, at as low a price as possible. we have never done a cost analysis of a book to determine whether it's publishable or not. We just know that when we're excited about something, we want to tell everyone else about it, and we turn it into a book. Our books are then distributed in bookstores by Publishers Group West (800 788-3123).
