Thing 10--Wikis

I thought it was interesting to see how the Princeton Library used a wiki for book reviews and then linked back to the Princeton catalog when you clicked on the title.

We used a wiki to plan 23 things on a stick and I thought it was a very useful way to keep track of various threads that were being worked on simulateneously by different people. It has since taken on a life of its own with this project and the comments from participants -- just like it is supposed to, but was not originally intended to do that. A very positive unintended consequence --as so often happens with these tools!
