David Ornstein talks about FlexWiki - and wall-sized screens

Scoble has posted a fascinating Channel 9 video interview with David Ornstein. David describes what makes wikis work, how his own FlexWiki advances the state of the art, and speculates about what type of people like wikis.

News about MSN Desktop Search and Non-Admin wikis

Time for a couple of wiki news items that I’ve been saving up for a while. In a “one small step” moment, I believe that the MSN Desktop Search wiki on Channel 9 is the first wiki to ever be referenced in a Microsoft help file. As you can imagine, this was quite a culture…

Sharing your bookmarks: http://del.icio.us, wikis, and the zen of SharePoint

Most of us have way too many bookmarks (favorites) in our web browsers. Bookmarks that we’ve accumulated over the years, bookmarks that we haven’t visited in ages, bookmarks that we jealously hoard from the prying eyes of our friends and co-workers. Well, ok, maybe we’re not actively hoarding them, but the way our browsers are…
