Digging the wikis

I’ve turned to Google Sites and Google Docs to manage most of my documentation needs. Used together, they make for a pretty robust solution that lends itself to collaboration. Last week, though, I started a project with the day job that is going to involve the creation of a very large core document with individual contributors handling various sections and an extensive review process. We also need a place to bring together a variety of disparate documents where they can ultimately be integrated and unified and then pushed out for publication in a variety of media (included print). Sure, Google Docs and Sites could handle this, but this felt like a job for a wiki. I’ve always felt the same for classes that require collaboration on an extensive document or that will be used for longer-term reference or guidance (as this particular set of documents will also be). So I set up a wiki.
