Whose Side(wiki) Are You On?

Doc Searls

What are we to make of Sidewiki ? Is it, as Phil Windley says , a way to build the purpose-centric Web ? Or is it, as Mike Arrington suggests , the latest way to “deface&# websites?

received an email asking me if I knew of any Wikis that provided information on eLearning concepts. there's not really a place where you can find a Wiki that covers eLearning concepts.

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology.
