Presentation fun.

I just found out that I'm prolly gonna be flying solo on presentation tomorrow. Now, admittedly I'm presenting a tool that I wrote, but while I know how mine works, I'm still a Co-Op with barely 4 months of experience working with this stuff, and beyond what I directly wrote, I'm not familiar with half of it.

Tomorrow ought to be an interesting day. ;-)

Long Live Wiki's!

Some of you may recall mention of Wiki[1]'s from some of my earlier entries, and you may have realized that I seem to think that a WikiWikiWeb is the greatest thing since the World Wide Web.

And, you're prolly right. I do think that. ;-)

So, in the interest of spreading the good word about Wiki's, I've created a new LiveJournal community, the wiki community. ;-)

It's open membership, open posting, intended for discussion, questions, comments, whatever, with regards to Wiki's. Want to know what a Wiki is? Or how they work? Or why you might want to use one? Perhaps you're curious as to what wiki software works well, and what doesn't?

Well, welcome to the LiveJournal's Wiki Community. ;-)

For those who have never heard of a Wiki, and would like a real quick intro, Wiki's are a truly open, fully collaborative web development experience. Anyone can edit any page, at any time. It sounds like a radical idea, but it can have some amazing results. New pages can be created in seconds, and all linking is handled automatically by use of WikiWords.

Check here for some WikiHistory and her for WikiSocialNorms which covers some information on Wiki's and how people treat them.

[1] The original, largest, and best known Wiki is Ward's Wiki, found here.

Iron Chef and other things that frighten me.

Okay, I'll admit it, I've never been a huge fan of Iron Chef. I've watched it once or twice, and it was mildly amusing, but I've never gotten into it much.

However, I know from many entries I've read, that a lot of you are Iron Chef fans, so I figured I'd pass one some of this information to you.

First of all, there are some people who are working on an Iron Chef Movie. I'm not even sure what to think about this.

Secondly, Iron Chef is coming to America. Yahoo has the news here. Also, this is the press release from UPN, where it seems it's gonna be played. And here's the really scary part. . . it's gonna star William Shatner. Yep, that's right. Commander Kirk's next mission, "the kitchen".
