I spent a few moments trying to think of what a merged product would look like. The main feature of a blog is that new articles can be written, with new articles at the top of the list, and made available through RSS and the website. The idea of a wiki is that, first, anybody can edit it, and second, it keep[s old versions of the edited pages, so you can roll them back. So what would the benefit of merging them be? Well, in a sense, instead of sending articles to subscribers, it would send editable source of blog posts to subscribers. Mike Caulfield wrfites, " the recent work of Ward Cunningham to create federated wiki communities moves wiki a bit more towards blogging. Voices are still minimized in his new conception, but control is not shared or even negotiated." Interesting thoughts.
