But surely the point is that, if people had no interesting in going to
the minimal effort of commenting, which is perfectly adequate (up to a
certain point) for keeping an article up to date, then the same people
will be even more unlikely to go to the sort of effort it takes to
make a wiki useful.
I think it's worth pointing out that blogs.linux.ie, while off the
beaten track of the main website, is a relatively vibrant part of
linux.ie. I suppose many of the blogs are not strictly linux related
(mine is not at all, for instance) but some of them are. IMHO a good
move might be to set up something similar to planetilug.linux.ie but
with the stipulation that blogs registered with this particular
aggregator be (majoritywise) linux and/or techie in nature. These
feeds could then be given some front-page presence.
It would lend a sense of community to the affair anyway.
