( Wiki Patterns )
The first big decision is whether or not to use a wiki … is this situation / problem / need / etc. suitable or best served by using a wiki?
Then comes the ‘talking it up’ with colleagues and team members … this’ll probably be a small group of folks who are
- willing to experiment,
- willing to provide really good feedback on the tool and our process in using it,
- willing to fail – and then learn from the mistakes
(this narrows the field down quite a bit for me … but being limited in scope is a good thing at the moment)
Now I’m looking at a kind of ‘blank canvass’ … how in the world are we to set this up, format it, lay it out, moderate … and be sure that we’re not stifling our creativity and excitement that made us say, “okay” to the idea of using a wiki in the first place?
Along comes Wiki Patterns … WOW!! Just what we need.
