A friend and I set up a mediaWiki instance on his server today. We're calling it a 'collaborative thinking space': a place for info, thoughts, concepts, and facts we talk about during our conversations. We don't have any rules on it yet - we don't think we'll need them - so it'll be interesting to see where this goes. Will a uniform format emerge? Will we make an index? How will we approach the writing? Will connections be like a decentralized network or a distributed one?
I'm also generally excited, because this means we'll have more conversations. Maybe opening a collaborative workspace like this is the best way to get your friends to have intellectual conversations with you. Or maybe it's overkill. Who knows at this point? I've lost my sense of self-awareness, traded it for a desire for 'cool things'.
