This incredible chart says it all about the importance of wiki collaboration. This should also be a message to bloated bureaucracies looking to squeeze that last bit of efficiency out of already overworked staff.
However, learning to wiki isn't just about vocational “goodness,” but rather about an essential skill moving forward. Just as we teach word processing, wikis and blogs have to be standard inclusion.
I'd just hate to see wikis and blogs be taught as poorly as some teachers teach word processing. Maybe someone will let me write the book!? (In my spare time!)
