The Wiki Way

/ 31 March 2004

I’ve been working on redesigning our staff web for the past couple weeks and am very pleased with the results of using a collaborative tool called a wiki. We are using PmWiki, one of many wiki engines out there. So far PmWiki has been a great way to enforce a common template on a site, yet keep the site very open to editorial input from a broad range of players who don’t have much HTML experience. Now the real acid test… Will the staff like the new site and help us maintain it? After all, one of the main problems with the old site has been how stale it gets. Will the more open editing framework of a collaborative wiki site really result in fresher content that the staff feels more ownership for? We’ll see…
