- Aug 12, 2005I thank you heartily for your response. Could I use you guys as
practice for my advocacy of this technology? At some point I'm sure
I'll find myself trying to support wiki's to management at work.
Assuming I just got a yes, I'll continue.
I guessing that a referee/moderator is acts as a gate keeper, only
allowing content that meets a specific criteria. This action prevents
people from publishing bad facts such as Viking helms having horns.
In a wiki, one can redirect bad facts and respond to them. For
As bad (untrue) facts are responded to, the articles acquire a
myth-busting quality which can be more educating than if the myth had
been 'stopped at the gate'.
I'll do some work in Cunnan relating to the SIG Knowledge pages in the
coming weeks as a priliminary. If I'm lucky, I may manage something
before I hit the road today.

The Knowledge Pages replaced my original links page for SIG, which at the time was a carefully compiled list of one person's effort. Sharing the load made sense because I couldn't keep up with it. But the idea was that it would remain refereed.
