I like these thoughts. But I'm not sure how to use a wiki. Currently we
have a mailing list. Lists are classic "push" technology--messages show up
in your regular mail box without you having to do anything proactive to see
them. Wikis (and web fora generally) are more "pull" technologies--you have
to actively choose to go to the site to use it. I'd hate to see the
vitality of SEUL/edu split between those who only use the mailing list and
those who only use the wiki. I think we need to figure out how these two
communication tools can best work together before we put up a wiki
I guess I'm echoing LP's idea of using a wiki for rapid development of
documents. Any other good possibilities?
