in a linear stream, which is not easy. doing it in a CMS
system is cumbersome.
in a wiki, you write a concept and if it relates to
another, you put
in the text [[another concept]]. then, when you submit,
you click on the resulting link
in some words, it's an dynamic hypertex system.
in an hypertext, some words are linked to other pages.
in a wiki such links are instantly made as of writing,
anybody can write and add his part
however the hyper linked page is not created at the moment.
if I can give my opinion, if you try to advocate the wiki
(or anything else), it's a good idea to
* give a very short summary like the words here
* then list and comment all the problems: some syntax, need
help from others, not sure to come, need some administration
(vandalism, security, sysops...)
* after that, only, list and discuss all the advantages.
ease of use, simpleness of basis editing (fixing typos...),
ease of collective (team) work...
* give a very short conclusion: we can manage the problems
and we need the advantages, here is a test site and a short
help document (prepare a one page pdf document about wiki
be short (not more than a half an hour) and you can win :-))
