About the distinction between the Wiki and the Blog (Site)
- Consider the audience, we want something that is outward facing. Slick looking, functional and exclusive to our use.
- You want one central place for everything, it does not make sense to split information.
Limitations of the Wiki
- Multiple parties (non-DMC) use the wiki, search will return unrelated items for internal communication.
- Not as portable as a blog, via RSS feed.
- Inward facing, for documenting progress on projects
- Meeting Minutes
- Has been the temporary space for tutorials until we can have one central location, the blog is that place.
- Avoid putting entries in overlapping categories
- Tags can overlap that is fine
- Categories are static, Tags are content areas. You can view all entries under a specific tag.
- A Category is like Video, for entry iMovie Tutorial, the tags for this entry; iMovie,Spring Workshops, Tutorials.
