42: Really Warming to wiki’s

by Richard on March 9, 2005

42 gets enthusiastic about Compass, and about the whole wiki thing. His example-based explanation of how and why it works is hereby filed under “I couldn’t have put it better myself”!
I’m grateful to those who’re getting involved in all this. Wiki works best when there is a community of folk making contributions, and that’s what I’ll be trying to build over the next little while. If you’ve had a look at Compass but been put off, I’d be really interested to hear your comments about the barriers to joining in.

I’m hoping that Compass will become a general-purpose Christian encyclopedia and a useful tool in explaining what the Christian faith is all about. Forgive me if I’m becoming a wiki bore. But I’m excited about the possibilities and really want to see it work.

I’ll try to keep quiet about it for a while now. :)

It’s not that I’m put off. I use wiki’s for information.
I read how they work, and I tried your blog wiki - the test page.
I don’t get it. I suppose if I had someone that does sitting at the computer with me and showing me the ‘how’ it wouldn’t be quite as mysterious or frustrating.:^)

Pay for the flight and I’ll happily come and sit at the computer for a while ;-)

Wouldn’t being rich be fun?
I wouldn’t think twice about it, I’d even by you the right winter clothes and give you a paid holiday:^)

Bene, what is it that you don’t get? Don’t know how to edit a page? Or something else?

I think it’s the editing.
What I need to do is re-read simple instructions, sit down and try again.
