wiki wiki wiki

I think I need to learn more about wikis — partially for work because now that my department is using wordpress for a reference desk log, I think it might make sense to turn our reference desk manual (currently a giant binder) into a wiki.

So I was thinking that I should come up with a personal project using a wiki first. I’m thinking of creating a comic books recommended for libraries wiki, with the lists of eleven as a starting point. I have a few questions about this:

1) Do any of you out there have experience maintaining a wiki — could you recommend some software?
2) Would you be willing to contribute in any way, by entering in reviews of comics or graphic novels that you think libraries should order? Or do you have any art/graphic design skills that could be used to make the site look cool?
3) Or is the whole idea lame? I know there are plenty of places already to get comics commentary already on the web.

Let me know what you think, either by e-mailing me or commenting below. Thanks!!!!
