The important thing about any kind of wiki is the ability to clamp
down who has access to make changes - specifically not allowing
anonymous users to be able to make changes. We had a wiki for VBAM
Games collapse under the weight of spammers because our guy wasn't
able to lock out anonymous posting. I suspect it was a function (or
lack thereof) of the particular code he was using, but I'm sure the
options have improved greatly in the last year or so.
For ease of information retrieval a wiki is much better than a blog, IMO.
who now returns to lurking mode :)
