I've never gotten into wikis. I just never found myself in a project where a wiki seemed the perfect solution. I've been toying with them for a couple weeks though, and then lo and behold, Meredith throws up the ALA Chicago Wiki. Now that makes sense to me! Know what? There's a Canadian Library Association Annual Conference too. Guess where it's being held this year? Calgary. June 15 - 18. I've always found that the best way for me to learn about a new technology is to jump right in. I don't usually do it publicly, but in this case that seems to be the point of wikis, so I grabbed the wiki that D'Arcy Norman put up here at the U of C and added a page for the CLA conference. You'll find it here: http://wiki.ucalgary.ca/page/CLA Oh, actually what I did was pretty much lift everything that Meredith did for a skeleton and replicate it locally, changing ALA to CLA and Chicago to Calgary.
I extend the same invite that Meredith did. If you know something about CLA or Calgary, please contribute to the wiki. You don't need an account to create or edit pages. You don't need to ask permission. Michelle has already started a great page on local restaurants, but the bars page needs some work ;-)
