Checking out the wikis

So tonight,I checked out and and the other wiki resources . One of the neat things that I found was a Recipe Wiki. That looks like a pretty cool resource. It is interesting, the past experience that I had with wikis were that they were all pretty plain vanilla-looking, sort of like Wikipedia. I had even started my own wiki a while ago that I may pick up again someday. But I might change to a different wiki platform, based on the new things that I've seen.

I do have some concerns about the editability of wikis. I can't help but be concerned that with a collaborative wiki, primarily Wikipedia, that just anyone can change information, particularly after I had just added something. Even with the wiki that I had been working on, I only gave editing rights to two people. And I secretly hoped that they wouldn't mess with the wiki.
LOL. Honestly I didn't realize that Wikis were still a big deal. I know that Wikipedia was popular, but I didn't realize that your average person would be interested in making wikis. i was wrong! I found a Chicago wiki from the travel wiki....pretty impressive! The person who created the wiki defiintely had done their homework! Perhaps with this nudge, I'll start working on my wiki again.

Goodnight dear Lisa Learns. Until, um...a few days fromw now. :)
