Okay, so I have taken the plunge. Now that Penn State has given the blessing for faculty and staff to create their own wiki pages, I took a breath and hit the create button. I’ve actually been using confluence for more and more of my own work-related tasks (one space for each of my two Web 2008 presentations, and even the Web Conference committee work, which is where I was first introduced to the wiki of choice by PSU; and let’s not forget the recent Tweet Meet addition). I’m not overly fond of Confluence per se, but I understand the reasons it was selected by Penn State. I really didn’t get how easy it was to set something up–and that they encourage you to do so–until I was noodling around Cole Camplese’s Brainstorming Breakfasts space (and, just for the record, Cole, brainstorming is one word, not two, so I stand by my original assumption as to what the “BS” in BS Breakfasts actually refers).
So here I am, all wikified and whatnot. I know how to navigate through one, and have often led others through their first several wiki posts. I’m really good at training, but now? Now all I have to decide is what to do with it. I’ll keep you posted. Better yet, tune in and stay tuned. We’ll be back.
