There are several wiki's out there now covering ows information, why don't we evaluate them and pick one to include. There will be supporters of all them, but maybe as the IWG we can pick the most used/populated one to 'promote' for the sake of not reinventing the wheel and for getting something out there quickly.

Just to keep everyone informed:

Outreach started a wiki here:

However, from the e-mail traffic on the internet group it seems like a lot of the info we were going to put there is getting baked into the new website.  Colin is also in discussion with CRM providers to serve the in-house needs of a large scale organizing effort.

I was going to work on the wiki but am holding off to see what ends up being on the site.  If a wiki still makes senses I'm willing to assist in loading info and maintaining it.

We've been discussing a wiki for a while.  They're easy to start (technically) but hard to maintain (community organizing). 

I've been doing some wiki'ing here:

I have no doubt a wiki would be tremendously useful but I have yet to find someone interested in bottomlining the community organizing, site management and information structuring.  Kate, are you interested?  If not, maybe we could reach out to the folks running the people's library.  Librarian-types often make great wiki'ers.

Hey Internet working group - 

At the GA last night, someone suggested staring an OWS wiki, to share information and gather resources. I don't know if this is within your perview, but I think it is a great idea, and y'all should start it!
