Vaspers contributes to Wikinomics wiki

"open source publicity wiki for small business"

I am also getting ready to launch a revolutionary, pioneering, grassroots activist collaboration platform for Open Source Government.

There already exists a group that provides Open Source advise to government: GOSAC.

For a sneak preview, see: my comment on "Wikinomics Beyond Business".

Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything is a book and wiki by Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams (Portfolio, 2006).

You must now move beyond the solo blog and form alliances in team blogs and wikis. You must evolve along with the web and blogosphere, for they cannot progress when components are glued to the done before.

Consider: what do you need more expertise in? How could you set up a site (wiki) that would enable your peers and colleagues to contribute their insights to, and thus be repository or archive trove, of vital and relevant information?

Blogs are *generally* solo acts, a preaching pulpit and teaching platform, a two way conversation about a topic, but not necessarily collaborating to solve a specific problem or promote a cause.

Wikis are more about team work, peering, crowdsourcing, group collaborations, communal projects.
