towards a blog~wiki

Nilesh wrote about Wikis, and the need for keyword based browsing in a weblog. A discussion followed in the comments on that entry, and it seems there are quite a few people who like the Wiki concept, but are intimidated by usage.

Wikis are really useful for learning stuff, because of the way content is divided in to sizable, highly interlinked chunks of information. Jumping from one chunk to other is one action - a simple click. But for readers who want to "learn" stuff on a weblog, they do have the search engine at hand, but it's still too complex - yet another text box to fill, and a button to press.
