Â What’s a wiki?Â Â It’s a web-based article that’s been written, edited, and updated by visitors.Â Think of it as the product of a mass collaboration.
Why should you know about wikis?Â They’re a fantastic way to keep up to speed on what’s going on in the meeting and events industry.Â Need a legal definition, or want to know what planners think makes a meeting green?Â Want to know what’s on planner’ minds, from corporate social responsibilty to mitigating their event’s carbon footprint? Baffled by the difference between a vlog (video log), flog (a fake blog) and a schlog (a ghostwritten blog)?Â The wiki meisters will be able to explain it all.
Meeting Professionals International has just luanched a wiki on its website (www.mpiweb.org), and it’s well worth a look.Â Posts are listed in chronological order (last post first) and are archive3d, so you can search to find the topic you want.
