I set up a wiki for work today. We’ll see if people in my department want to use it as a way of putting our reference desk manual into electronic format. I decided to use MediaWiki for the work wiki — it does have tons of documentation, I wanted to try using additional wiki software, and I think it might be a little bit easier for my department to use. Some of the features (like LaTeX) are not going to be used at all, and I’m wondering if there’s a way to repress those options from the editing interface. The wiki installation process is SO EASY! If you know how to transfer files to a web site, have MySql and PHP, and the word “chmod” does not sound alien to you, it only takes a few minutes to set one up. Really, if I can do it, anyone can.
I still dig WikkaWikki for the Comics4Libraries Wiki, and hopefully any future other contributors (hint, hint) will like it as well. I’ve started putting a few reviews (modified and copied over from this site) on the manga page (scroll down)
Thanks to Greg and the netbib weblog for promoting my new wiki! Once there’s more content up there, I might try to hype it more, just to see if more people would like to contribute to it.
