Wiki Vs Email
Mar 28, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good diagram comparing the process involved in collaboration using wiki and collabopration using email (guess which one is easier!). I would add that collaboartion using Google Docs (which I have some people here at NRC testing today - yay!) works the same as the wiki picture. One quibble with this post: why is there some sort of U.S. Military logo representing the 'wiki' option? I think it would be more appropriate to use a MediaWiki logo, or something similar. Total: 305

Re: Wiki Vs Email

The logo is there because the diagram was apparently created by an employee of the U.S. National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. [Comment] [Permalink]

Re: Wiki Vs Email

Well, I knew that. My point is, when representing 'wiki' a better logo could have been chosen. [Comment] [Permalink]

Re: Wiki Vs Email

Nice diagram! WOuld make a useful handout to supplement the CommonCraft video about wikis, which I quite often use for an introduction to wikiing (one or two "i"s in the verb ... what do you reckon?) [Comment] [Permalink]
