About Galaxiki and Jos Kirps
Galaxiki is a wiki based, editable online galaxy consisting of millions of stars, planets, moons, pulsars, black holes and much more. Site members can edit solar systems, invent life forms and write their own science
fiction stories. Community members have to make sure their stories are compatible with other user's stories to create a consistent fictional universe. Galaxiki now has thousands of users.

Galaxiki is a non-profit project, the site is relying on advertising and on users willing to pay a small amount to get an own, personal solar system instead of community-editable systems.

In mid 2007 Jos Kirps launched Galaxiki, a wiki galaxy consisting of millions of stars, planets and moons editable by its community members. The project gained great worldwide attention, it was website of the week in Linux Journal USA, website of the day on Yahoo!, About.com, Pocketlint, redOrbit and many more.
In 2008 Galaxiki was one of the SEOmoz Web2.0 award winners, it was 2nd in the category games and entertainment.
