Rhet Tech Wiki: UNLEASHED!

It was bound to happen sooner or later: Rhet Tech Wiki, a wiki dedicated to rhetoric and technology. So far, we have a short list of wikirhetoricians, but we're all hoping that will grow as word gets out. I like to dream about a massive wiki for rhetoric and technology as extensive as the wikipedia, with teachers, scholars, and students from all over the world contributing to a massive database of useful information. I'm still working on the Keywords section. It's a beautiful system of open content and true, authorless collaboration (community vs. individual).

I encourage everyone to visit the site and consider contributing. There is no registration process or any limitations on what you can edit. Just remember, there are no authors on the wiki--just participants! Come, embrace the Wiki Way!

Sort of a wiki version of the Encyclopedia of Rhetoric and Composition (but not a derivative work, of course! ;))? I like it. :) I wonder, though, if I wanted to contribute something I've already posted on my blog, tweaked for the wiki, is that okay? I'm fine with the whole automatic-public-domain thing and wouldn't say "Originally posted at (node URL)."


Of course you can post what you want there. We just don't want authors to feel that the stuff they post is protected or that other people aren't free to edit it. :-)

It is still very much in development and needs your help!
