More on wiki

February 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm (fun, learning 2.0, library, web 2.0) (, )

As part of Learning 2.0 we were asked to add info to a wiki known as pbwiki.  It is kind of a fun place to go – lists and paragraphs of various people’s favorite things in big general categories – favorite books, favorite blogs and favorite tv shows.  I  added my blog , but I also  couldn’t resist adding my favorite  tv shows.   Kind of a chaotic place, but it reminds you that wikis  are still part of the wild  side of  the web.

    That lack of control is a really really hard thing for many librarians. People were all up in arms about LibraryThing because people could use dog, puppies, pooch or others to name a dog for instance. The many thousands of LT users don’t care and are having fun sharing and learning. Same with wikis…it’s like messing with your (library people’s) head. 😉

    Actually, I’m falling in love with tag clouds. At libraries, we need a basic set of terms … but to quote a friend, who uses smoking ‘cessation’ when they are talking about quitting smoking? Why can’t they use ‘real’ words at the library? I think alowing people to tag books in our catalog could be quite interting
