Earthweb Publishes IT Manager's Introduction to Weblog and Wiki Tools

We noticed that Dave Winer of Scripting News pointed to an article on Earthweb called Give Your Users the Power of the Press With Weblogs and Wikis. This is a good article for corporate IT managers to read if they are interested in providing basic web publishing tools to their users.

We haven't talked much about Wikis here on CTDATA, but they are useful knowledge sharing tools if they are structured correctly. According to the Portland Pattern Repository, a popular Wiki:

The ideas of 'Wiki' may seem strange at first, but dive in and explore its links. 'Wiki' is a composition system; it's a discussion medium; it's a repository; it's a mail system; it's a tool for collaboration. Really, we don't know quite what it is, but it's a fun way of communicating asynchronously across the network while dynamically sharing your ideas.

The Earthweb article says that in wiki originator Ward Cunningham's
The Wiki Way
, "...companies as disparate as Motorola and The New York Times are reported to use wikis for everything from workflow management to troubleticketing to collaborative documentation projects."
