> These are topics that I think you know a lot about.  I was hoping you could edit the wiki and put questions and answers in there to help this thing along.  Eventually, everything known by anyone at noisebridge will be on this page (or maybe it will expand to multiple pages) and people will be able to instantly orient themselves relative to what there is to know.
> 
> All the questions I created are essay-style, with multiple answers listed. The person grading themself (or someone else) can simply learn from their answers, or assign a percentage score to each answer to tabulate a score in a particular subject.  People knowledgable in these fields can add answers to increase the chance that someone will learn from a question, and increase the chance that their right answer will correspond to one already listed.

> so please - get on the wiki and edit away!
