For starters, to the guy at SFSU trying to learn how to write, take another run at that sentence: "I am writing a white paper for my class, and I'm searching for writers who use wikis."
I've been asked before what I thought about wikis in a software documentation environment. I suspect that the only reason Anarchipedia works at all is because there exists a large population of educated types who are willing to contribute and who are able to do so because they are writing their entries on someone else's nickel. Probably university souls who would otherwise be preparing lectures or grading some of the few papers that students still claim to write. Or maybe they are just avoiding their tedious chores. I'm dubious that folks in most development environments have the leisure to dawdle around in a wiki when they have their own workloads to get through. Or am I misunderstanding the charm of a wiki? It sounds like a mechanism to convince other people to do my work. will white On Mar 18, 2007, at 5:51 PM, Diane Gaskill wrote: > I am writing a white paper for my class, and I'm searching for writers > that use wikis. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ There is something fascinating about science.
