The need to better sort and aggregate a raft of free writing between me and a collaborator (Ted over in Singapore) led us to try wikis. This is after collating 19 pages in a word file of emails back and forth.
On the surface, I see the big advantage being the ability for each wikipage to be a persistent text that can be more easily edited and modified than email threads. The hyperlinking also seems like a nice feature.
As I have been fretting over how many different areas of research and schoalrly literature I draw on, and finding myself stymied by the lurking sense that I know less than I have forgotten or let go rusty, I thought it might be an effective way to organize my own core knowledge for use in classes and research writing. I had been day dreaming about my own private encyclopedia. Maybe a wiki would function similarly.
Wikispaces, which we used because OSWC had used it, has blog integration (cool).
I wonder if select pages can be made public?
Mine is private for now, but maybe I will go public if it seems valuable or worthwhile (and not crap).
For a title, I played with networks-movements- organizations. So its called netmoveorg for now. Lame probably, but oh well.
