Anyone interested in how to enhance collaboration inside a team or business will have already tripped over the term ‘Wiki‘. Even those who have little or no interest in ‘collaboration’ will probably have heard of the Wikipedia ( hands up those who haven’t).
Social Text (check out their ‘what’s a wiki?’ link) has been kicking around for some time now and it’s ‘enterprise wiki’ concept offers a great many solutions to problems of knowledge management inside teams and organizations.
I just tripped over yet another service – Wetpaint – which also aims to take wiki mainstream. They have an amusing collection of parody commercials that not only inform the viewer about the practical uses of wiki, but also are bound to have you smiling (which is very good for your immune system folks – so Wetpaint could claim that learning about wikis might improve your health).
