Wikis in Plain English
There's a useful little movie on You Tube called Wikis in Plain English which may be useful to explain the concept to newcomers or non-believers!
Why do a blog? Many of us don't like the formality of article writing, so a blog can set us free. But why should anyone read it? We're always going on about information overload. I guess it's about making connections, sharing knowledge ( sounds like the jargon is creeping in...I'll be "adding value" soon...).
We can gain so much from sharing and that's what I'll aim to do : point to stuff that has come along which you may find interesting.
Now I am retired I no longer have to champion Information Literacy to students and librarians! Instead I can enthuse about Baroque churches! I want to share the joy of my experiences seeing the architecture, hearing music and worshiping in these amazing buildings.
