I agree!! a dedicated wiki task force would be great!! I think the entire movement needs to be able to self map, providing standard templates that each location can use for links to WGs, projects, needs/wants, etc. Why reinvent the wheel? I'd be down to help with this, in whatever way possible. I had to take a job recently, so I'm a bit sidelined for the next two weeks but I can try to marshall content at night, reach out to other occupations, whatever would be useful...

request - we employ a wiki that has an WYSIWYG editor, most folks aren't going to want to learn the syntax. Let's keep the learning curve to a minimum... I'm pretty sure Media Wiki has a good plugin for this...

You can track its trail here

If we are serious about online wiki's lets get a composite team of systems and wiki adminstrators, review media-wiki and others, and decide and deploy something that we back up and manage in the data center facilities provided to the occupy teams.
