My friend Steve has been doing some thinking around and about the convergence of the weblog and WikiWiki mediums; a medium that has become known as bliki (or wikilog). Steve thinks that a wiki might be a good place to store blog comments. Martin Fowler’s weblog, wherein the creation of a CamelCased blog entry pushes the output to both a blog and a wiki is probably the most famous bliki.
And here’s an interesting thought:
[0xDecafbad via Steve]”If it works effectively, I should be able to pull my weblog writings in the moment into longterm topics, and refer to longterm work in weblog entries, all with a minimum of effort. In fact, it would be best if this system could surprise me, by making unexpected links or by reminding me of long forgotten thoughts.”
Ahhhh, the semantic bliki.
