I've been experimenting this past year with a Wiki for capturing blog entries and information capture (with retrieval of course!). Which works best?
The wiki is an excellent tool for organizing and building. The internal cross referencing and indexing are becoming critical as the amount of information grows. But the wiki does not handle the little blog entries nearly as well as Blogger.com. However, I like the ability to keep a logbook for the month with random notes in the wiki - these can be linked or moved later.
The reverse chronological sequence of the blog is good for capturing the running dialogue in a consistent fashion. The software is polished, professional, and looks beautiful on the web. Pages, links, tags, and chronological hierarchy simply works - in a powerful but simple fashion. What is not to love! And that is where it leaves me - the ability to create static pages within this structured environment.
Seems like a good decision point for evaluating the strong points of both a wiki and a blog. My first use of this blog was July 8, 2003. I began using PmWiki on September 1, 2005.
