23 Things – Wikis

Having has a very long hiaitus from the 23 Things program, I decided that today would be an opportune time to return to it (and maybe knock off 3-4 topics today).

One of the things that occurs to me is that a wiki might be a good tool to replace policy/procedure documents that currently sit on network drives , and that often have multiple versions that don’t, for one reason or another don’t get deleted. For it to work, the person who oversees the day-to-day running of the site needs to be able to let staff update and modify it.

As an example, I’m on the working group for this year’s E-Dayz conference,  and it uses a wiki to organise its work. The updating of information is not centralised through any single person. Everyone can update the wiki. It’s one of the great things about social networking: no-one has to control it.
