Thing 17

Hmm…I am a bit skeptical of the Sandbox approach to using Wikis. I understand that it is primarily a teaching method of how to enter and edit data within a previously established Wiki. However, simply based on content, it seems that much more can be achieved via other interfaces – such as LibraryThing for book lists, or Rollyo for blog lists. Eh, maybe I am too partial for these interfaces. But, hey, that’s the great thing about technology and the internet – there are so many ways to achieve the same thing.

I still think that Wiki’s are an excellent way to promote library functions and resources.
