General Motors Wants You To Help Write Its Memoirs

Date posted: 02-08-2008

DETROIT — As part of the celebration of its 100th anniversary, General Motors is asking the public to "share their personal, first-person experiences" with the automaker.

"We welcome everyone to share their stories and build a rich and continuously evolving history of GM's people and products," said Steve Harris, GM vice-president of communications.

To submit a reminiscence, writers are asked to contribute to the Generations of GM Wiki on GMnext.com, where they can post a picture, write a story or read what others have written. Apparently, censorship will be kept to a minimum, although GM says "all submissions are moderated to assure they follow the 'Rules of the Road' listed on the Wiki, but accuracy is overseen by the user community and subject-matter experts." The possibilities for submissions are endless. Just imagine what consumer watchdog Ralph Nader would write about the Chevrolet Corvair, or what muscle-car fanatics will write about the original Pontiac GTO.

The Wiki will use technology similar to that pioneered on the Wikipedia Web site, GM says.

What this means to you: Time to trot out those old photo albums and jot down a few words about your favorite GM products. — Anita Lienert, Correspondent
