If you read my last post you saw that I was a little disappointed that I did the LITA National Forum Wiki before I learned about Wetpaint. Well Chris Kollas from Wetpaint also read that post and has offered to help me move all of the info from pbwiki to Wetpaint so that I can test it out. At first I didn’t think it was wise, but then I figured [ Read More ]

There is another free hosted wiki option to add to the mix. Wetpaint looks pretty darn slick. Combining the best of wikis, blogs, and forums, Wetpaint is the canvas where everyone gets a brush. From personal expression to collaboration, Wetpaint empowers you to connect with others on whatever you’re passionate about. I kind of wish I had read about it before I started the LITA National Forum wiki. I’ll let [ Read More ]
Spead the word! I have set up an unofficial wiki for the LITA National Forum which will take place in Nashville, TN this year. This will be my first year attending – and presenting – and I feel a little lost with the whole thing. I know that other conference wikis have helped me get organized so I thought I’d take the initiative this time and set up this site [ Read More ]
At the beginning of the year I set up my first MediaWiki site. It wasn’t easy to figure everything out – and there is A LOT to figure out. But now that everything is set up I have another problem – no activity. The wiki site is my collaborative writing site Tag You’re It. The site has been around since 1999 and I’d hate to have to give up on [ Read More ]

Back in December there was a lot of news coverage regarding an article in Nature magazine that stated that both Wikipedia and Britannica had a similar number of errors. Well Britannica has replied with a 20 page report (which I have not read all of – for reasons already stated – I’m way behind) In its December 15, 2005, issue, the science journal Nature published an article that claimed to [ Read More ]
I don’t get it! Why is it that everyone is out to get the Wikipedia? Why is it that no one seems to realize that it’s a great invention and is not meant to replace your usual sources of information – but to promote community – and learning for that matter? How? Well, when I first signed up for Wikipedia I wanted to find some resources about Shelties – I [ Read More ]
The unofficial Computers in Libraries 2006 Conference wiki is now up and running. Tag: cil2006
How did I miss this? If you are in the same boat as me you should check out the LISWiki – I’ll be exploring it in more detail this weekend.
I mentioned earlier that everyone at Jenkins Law Library was going to attend this seminar in our multi-purpose room – and we did. It was really neat to have the computer screen projected up on the big screen and hear Meredith’s voice coming out of our ceiling – but that’s not what you want to hear about. Meredith gave a great introduction to what Wikis are and how we can [ Read More ]
