I wonder if this is a stupid idea? -- JoiIto 2003-04-19
I don't think so at all, I'm working on something similar myself -- MichaelFagan
Wiki entries are not chronological like blog entries. Maybe it would be better to have a wiki for each category, and then route the blog entries for that category to show up on the same page as the wiki in a sidebar or something. If you're trying to aggregate content snippets that you hunt down throughout the web, you can blog them, and then the wiki folks can integrate the snippets one by one into the encompassing wiki document. Even cooler if you could mark each of the blog entries as successfully incorporated or not. -- CurtSiffert
Yes Yes Yes!!! So I just set up the links from the MT categories. I'm going to have to figure out how to include the MT category entries into MoinMoin. I'm much better at hacking MT templates than messing with MoinMoin... -- JoiIto
"Very cool! I like the category index. Maybe each category page should have a link to its own index, like what just put at the top. It would better if it could just dynamically look it up and display it somehow..." -- CurtSiffert
How about automatically appending a link from the wiki page back to the weblog entry (as i have done by hand below). You might want to TrackBack your post to the wiki channel on Topic Exchange to get more input. http://topicexchange.com/t/wiki/ Finally, there's a plug-in for MovableType that renders WikiWords as links to your wiki (assuming you like MT enough to not switch to pyblosxom, which integrates nicely with MoinMoin, or to use MoinMoin's own weblog capability). --JohnAbbe
This looks very cool, but I it looks like a bit more integration than I'm ready for.... But I guess this would be the way to create an index of the entries as well as a index and a page for the categories... -- JoiIto
This blog is really wonderful,it look very smart,I visit it neary every day.
Two statements caught my attention while scanning this morning:
A statement by David Mattison in "Quickiwiki, Swiki, Twiki, Zwiki and the Plone Wars,", Information Today 11(4), April 2003:
"The bad news about wikis ... Unless you implement a wiki within an industry-standard database such as Oracle, MySQL, or PostgreSQL, you may need programming skills to migrate your wiki from one wiki implementation to another. Some wiki implementations store wiki content in database records, while others store content in plain-text files (don't forget, XML is plain text). In both cases, the Web site is dynamically rendered into HTML."
A statement by Tiernan Ray in "Why Blogs Haven't Stormed the Business World," April 29, 2003:
"Movable Type provides integration with databases to make publishing of discussion threads more organized."
Hey Joi, I just had a Google GMail message show up pointing at this page, odd and nifty. --EdwardVielmetti
