  • Only lately has our Wiki (Twiki) started to take off. For a while I was on the only one creating pages, but then slowly, a couple of people started and once I forced (instead of asked) my sys admins to use it, we're now rockin'. I'm finding that people find the Wiki syntax intimidating, just because it is different, even though it is simple. Also, some people aren't comfortable with the philosophy of a continuously modified document -- they want to do once, completely, and be done with it . So asking them to just throw anything onto a Wiki page, not worry about formatting, not worry about spelling, makes people suspicious. They'd rather use some HTML editor with spell checking. Finally, I find my collegues uncomfortable with a website that has an ad hoc structure, or a structure in flux. They would rather someone create an official navigation header and decide on official places to put web pages, rather than let it grow on its own. But it sure is sweet when the light goes on over their head and they see the beauty.
