Blog vs. Wiki

One difference between a blog and a wiki is that the blog’s only organization is a is a chronological serial stream, allowing posts to “fall off” the bottom when they get too old. Yes, there is often some categorization or groups, but that is a minor character.

A wiki requires more intelligent hierarchical sort and keeps posts from aging. If you want to keep a time stamp on the material, you need to explicitly embed that into message content.

Turns out most of the material I write is not time dependent, even though it may be keyed by timed events. so I’m slowly transporting blog posts to my wiki. I may even create a wiki stub of sorted blog posts.

What do you think?
