In which Tom mentions that he's just started his first Wiki…

Little to say except that I’ve spent some of this evening working to install my first ever Wiki using UseMod. I’ve got a very specific project in mind – getting a group of less-than-totally-tech-savvy community members to get together and assemble their own FAQs, site history and help files. Adrian Hon’s recently got something similar going with the Metafilter Wiki which I’m very impressed with. This feels extremely interesting and experimental – very much like weblogging did three years ago – but as far as I can tell Wikis already have a weight of history building behind them. I’ll keep writing about how the project appears to be going (but I’m not planning to link to it from just yet).
